Steven Lloyd Goldsmith, the son of Olin Russel and Eleanor (Septer) Goldsmith was born January 18, 1948 in Red Oak, Iowa. Steve graduated from Corning High School, Corning, Iowa with the Class of 1966. He resided most of his life in Corning. He lived a short time in Winterset before making West Des Moines, Iowa his home for the past fifteen years.

Steve had to overcome many obstacles in his life. His favorite pastime was spent solving sudoku and crossword puzzles. Steve was a very dependable person and an avid Nascar fan, which he enjoyed watching with his brother Russ. Steve’s caring nature was demonstrated in the loving manner in which he cared for his mother and brother. He always had a smile and loved jokes. He will be missed by those who knew and loved him.

Left to cherish Steve’s memory are his siblings: Russel (Janet) Goldsmith, West Des Moines, Iowa; Bill Goldsmith, Warrensburg, Missouri; Marge Huffman, Geneseo, Illinois; five nephews; one niece; and several cousins, and many friends.

Preceding Steve in death were his parents; and brother-in-law; Steve Huffman.
