It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Roger John Steele, age 80, who passed away on July 23, 2023.  Roger was born in, and a long time resident of, Chicago who recently moved to Geneva Illinois with his wife.

On June 6, 1964 Roger married the love of his life Janice Marie (Schmidt) Steele and began the journey that defines his legacy, his family.  Roger and Janice went on to have three children, 10 grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Roger earned a degree in Electrical Engineering and proudly worked most of his career with Motorola as an Engineering Manager and then Commodity Manager for 35 years.  In retirement, he loved to spend time with his family, travel with his wife and read history, but those closest to Roger knew he was a cowboy at heart.
