  • Death: He died on June 3, 2013, at age 57.
  • Burial: He was buried in St Mary Cemetery, Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Steven L. Wilson, Town of Vandenbroek, age 57, died Monday June 3, 2013. He was born in Elkhorn on February 11, 1956 to Norman and Kate (Roemer) Wilson. Steve completed his undergraduate studies at Lawrence University before graduating from the University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison. Steve married Debrah Kaufman at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church in Little Chute on August 29, 2004.

    In addition to his parents, Steven is survived by his wife, Debbie; children: Philip, Little Chute; and Julia, Chicago; their mother, Patti Wilson, Appleton; step daughters Jessica Dercks, Little Chute; and Shannon (Jon) Callies, Peachtree City, GA; grandchildren: Alexis, Isaac, Anna, Dominic, Grace, Will and Brynn; brothers: Rod (Ann) and his twin Stan (Lisa); father-in-law Joe Kaufman; Debbie's siblings: JoAnn Koehnke, Ginna (Jack) Heegeman, Dave (Linda), Judy (Roger) Regeth, Mike, Ralph (Diane), Mary (Steve) Ready, Greg (Kim), Dan (Laurie) and Ann (Ken) Hansen; aunts: Mary Wilson and Caroline (David) Willis; and nieces and nephews: Jordan (Andrea), Megan, Erin, Shannon, Nate and Meredith Wilson and Brianna (Brian) Lunde. He is further survived by other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Steve was preceded in death by his mother-in-law Vivian Kaufman; and uncle Howard Wilson.

    Steve would always say that you can tell a lot about a man by his shoes. Steve Wilson was a man with a wide variety of very interesting shoes, each for a specific occasion in his life. He was a man who enjoyed the beauty in this world and enjoyed even more so in sharing it with the people he loved. Travel destinations with those close to him were always a high point for Steve. Two of his favorite locations included Florida and Chicago. The city provided ample opportunities for him to educate those with him on its rich history and he often marveled at the level of detail that goes into operating and maintaining Disneyland, a place he visited on fifteen separate occasions. In almost all of his adventures you'd find his loving wife Debbie right at his side. They enjoyed their time to pray, their time to travel, and their time together. They never departed a morning together without a kiss good bye, a strong testament to the bond that they shared. As a father, Steve enjoyed taking road trips with his son Philip and playing tennis with his daughter Julia, amongst a myriad of other activities. He loved playing sports with his grandkids and was a consummate instructor, always trying to help the kids learn. In his spare time Steve loved being with his family. He loved barbeques in the backyard, Sunday morning brunch, Brewer games, Packer games, and a good round of golf. In his personal time he enjoyed reading, especially material based on history, taking in a good movie, and listening to classical music. Steve lived his life with an appreciation for the good things in this world and was an ambassador to generosity like no other. He leaves behind a set of well-worn shoes and families that will always remember the good times and the simplicity with which he approached them.

    Visitation will be held Thursday June 6, 2013 at ST. JOHN NEPOMUCENE CATHOLIC CHURCH (323 S. Pine St. Little Chute) beginning at 2:00 p.m. until time of Mass at 5:00 p.m. The Rev. Msgr.
