Roman F. Stepka, 90


Roman was a simple man, down to earth, and always positive.  His affable personality drew everyone to him and he touched people everywhere he went.  After retiring from farming, he worked for Anderson Bus Company for 20 years and drove pre-school children; his kindness and love for children earned him the title of “grandpa”.  Spending time with his own grandchildren brought him his greatest joy in life and he attended all of their sporting or school events.  He loved nothing more than to fly and travel with his family; he spent his 90th birthday on a beach at South Padre Island and touched all vacationers there; they all seemed to know it was his birthday and celebrated right along with him.  He will be sadly missed by so very many; he stole everybody’s hearts wherever he went.


Roman is survived by his children, Tracy (Dean)_Parks of Watertown, Jennifer (Cliff) Lindquist of New Prague, Paula (Chris) Giesen of New Prague; sisters, Evelyn (Joe) Scheffler of New Prague, Jenny (Alvin) Fremouw of Menomonie, WI; sisters-in-law, Delores Stepka of Prior Lake, Rosie Stepka of Lonsdale; 8 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren.  He is preceded in death by his wife, Rita on July 21, 2009; son, Steven; parents; brothers, John, Lawrence, and Clarence Stepka and Joseph in infancy.
