Steiger and LaVera (Lovejoy) Steiger. He graduated from Weyauwega-Fremont High School in 1952. On June 4th, 1955, he was united in marriage to Sharon L. Reinhardt. Daral proudly served his country in the United States Army. He worked as a farmer and retired from Hillshire Farm in New London. Daral enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, his many camping adventures over the years, going to tractor pulls, painting by numbers and doing puzzles. He was a member of Hope United Church of Christ in Fremont.
Daral is survived by his loving wife of nearly 64 years, Sharon; their six children: Rusty (Barb) Steiger, Dawn (Tim Sr.) Vallery, Kay Steiger, John (Kim) Steiger, Jerry Steiger and Kris (Nicole) Steiger. He is also survived by 22 grandchildren and 31 great-granchildren. He is further survived by four sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Besides his parents, Daral was preceded in death by one great-grandson (The Mighty) Micah Witalison, his brother Alan Steiger, four brothers-in-law, one sister-in-law, and his in-laws.
A memorial service that will celebrate Daral’s life will be held at Hope United Church of Christ in Fremont (8950 Alpine Road) on Tuesday, April 2, at 11:00am with Rev. Jeannie Douglas officiating. A gathering of family and friends will be held at the church on Tuesday from 9:00am until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established.
