Mark Lynn Steinhoff Obituary- Death, Mark Lynn Steinhoff Funeral

teinhoff, Mark Lynn

passed away suddenly on New Year’s Eve 2021, having suffered a fatal heart attack during an unseasonably warm afternoon walk with his wife, Robin.

Mark was a friend to everyone he met, sincerely interested in each person’s story and what made them tick. He counted his closest friends as family. Always curious, he was a lifelong learner, always striving to make each day interesting. Most recently, he was studying for a commercial drone pilot license. Although he had a successful and fulfilling career, his jobs did not define Doc — his personality and interests are what made him who he was — a truly unique, fun and loving man. Thoughtful and generous, he was a doer, always taking care of the people he loved. A devoted husband and best friend to his wife Robin, they were a perfect partnership, and she is lost without him.

Born in 1956 in Cape Girardeau, MO, Mark was the beloved youngest son of Mary Lee and Louis Vera Steinhoff (both deceased), brother of Kenneth (Lila) and David (Diane), son-in-law to Maurice and Marian Hirsch, brother-in-law of Jeff Hirsch (Donna Parrone’) and Tracy (Andy) Speller, uncle of Matthew (Sarah) Steinhoff and Adam (Carly) Steinhoff, Kim (Casey) Tisdale, Amy (Ian) Hawkins, Jake Speller, Anna Speller, and Caroline Parrone’ (Ben Maddocks), and great-uncle to Malcolm, Brynn, Taylor, Emery, Cole, Graham, Elliot, Finn, Hudson, Harper, and Charlie. Mark loved his family deeply and always said that he had the most perfect childhood.

There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to succinctly sum up all that/who Mark was. He was loved like nobody’s business, and he is truly missed.
