Don R. Steele

Don Steele passed away on the brisk Pittsburgh morning of November 8th. He was a loving husband and father to his wife Ann and his children Jaime Flores (son in-law Spencer Flores), Nathan Steele, and Kristen Steele. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dover and Francis, and his brother James. Don was a man of many talents. He was a tree trimmer, he also started his own locksmith business (Steele Security), had a passion for gardening, authored a book on the Civil War, volunteered at Gettysburg, and spoke on many accounts of historical events. All while remaining a devoted husband and father to his family. Don’s faith marked his life and left an impact on everyone he met. “Honor the Lord”, were the words he lived by. He was dedicated to sharing our country’s history and would specifically speak of the reunion at Gettysburg. It was an event that happened 50 years after the end of the Civil War, where men greeted each other in love and forgiveness orchestrated by the loving Spirit of God. It is this sentiment of love, healing, and forgiveness that he’d want everyone to know and remember.
