Everyday, a shattered family posts about a loved one’s overdose. Today, it is the family of Greg Steffler. In choosing to disclose Greg’s cause of death, the Steffler family hopes to humanize the opioid epidemic, putting a human face on things to changes hearts and minds in powerful ways. Nothing mattered more to Greg than his sobriety. Sometimes with addiction comes relapse, but that doesn’t define the person that Greg was on the inside. Greg worked hard for his sobriety, but in the end, addiction won. We hope this message gets to someone in need of a wake-up call, and to bring awareness.
Greg was a graduate of Madison Heights High School, Class of 1995. He was a hard worker, kind man. He loved to be with his friends, and you could always find him where the party was at. Everybody loved Greg and there wasn’t a bad thing you could say about him except that he was an addict. He also enjoyed fishing, hog roasts, amusement parks, and being with family. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Greg is survived by his children Hank Steffler, Quentin Steffler, and Austin Allman; grandson Armmonie Sparkman; sister Paula Jo; nephews Alan Golday and Terry Golday; Mother Cynthia Steffler; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is preceded in death by his father Fred Steffler, grandparents Fred and Pauline Steffler and Thomas and Lydia Smiley, and friends Donald Thomas and Rick Arline.
Cremation was chosen through Legacy Cremation and Funeral Service – Anderson. Graveside services will be held at a later date.
