ROBERT HIRSCH STEFFENS
12/24/11 to 05/07/98
Robert H. Steffens passed away Thursday, May 7, 1998. Mr. Steffens was born in Des Moines, Iowa and most recently was a resident of Ventura County, since 1966. He was survived by his wife, Margaret J. Steffens; son, Robin G. Steffens; stepson, John R. Liechty; and stepdaughter, Janice AKA Debbie Coss nee Rotolone; grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many friends. Robert was a strong, yet very gentle gentleman, who had built homes, furniture, worked as a jeweler, an engraver, and truck driver. He had several hobbies, including refinishing and constructing things, golf, bowling and his beautiful fine art skills. He was family oriented, a supportive and loving husband, father, stepfather. He provided a safe and stable environment in which family could celebrate life daily. He taught me important things like the difference between a friend and an acquaintance, honor in doing something right, patience to see things through and the wisdom required in constantly becoming a better person. He told me what was the best in me. I'll never forget the strengths in me which he nurtured and held in high regard. He also told me, in a most loving way, just what a handful I could be and let me figure it out. Robert helped to salvage family and friends out of distress and was almost always at peace with the world in general. He could tell jokes and probably never forget a single one he told. He could spin tales to make you laugh and he made the best buttermilk pancakes I've ever had in my life. Sundays, while he courted my mom, were the best a prospective stepchild could want for. He was my friend and took on the awesome job of being our head of household, husband, father, stepfather and friend. He did a monumental job that never left us wanting for more. Robert Steffens, I will love you and honor you always.
