Reichel, Stephan “Steve”
Stephan “Steve” Reichel, age 60, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his sons on Sunday, January 10, 2016.
Steve was born in Racine on May 19, 1955 to John and Daphne Reichel. A lifelong resident of Franksville, on November 5, 1977, he married the love of his life Sharon (nee Michel) at St. Louis Catholic Church. Steve was employed by CNH for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2010. He had many interests and could fix anything, but especially enjoyed working on his 1967 Chevelle and spending time with his four grandchildren. Steve’s loyalty and love of family and friends were indescribable. His kindness guided us in our lives and he inspired us with his resilience as he coped with numerous illnesses over the years.
Steve will be dearly missed by his friends and family. Dear Father of Steve (Katie), Tom (Adele) and Nick (fiancé Meg) Reichel. Loving Papa of Allyson, Dane, Reid and Kate. Brother of Kathy (Gary) Rochau, Karen (Rob) Ludwig, the late John “Moose” (Terri) Reichel and Jeff Reichel.

I didn’t know Steve, but I am one of the people lucky enough to work with his son Nick at the Department of Transportation. There are no words to describe such a loss, but know Steve watches over his wonderful family with much love. Heaven received a very special angel.

Steve’s first love was his family! He had so much love and respect for Sharon. Steve was so proud of his sons and loved to share about his Grandchildren. I often said if I could pick a husband for my daughters they would be just like the Reichel boys. What a wonderful family. They always showed their hearts and kindness to everyone they met. Thanks to all the good times!
