Some weeks, there wasn’t a day that would go by when John G. Steffen and his wife would not golf.
    “That was their favorite thing to do,” Mr. Steffen’s son, Jim said.
    Mr. Steffen, of Cedar Grove, 92 died Wednesday, Jan. 3, at Cedar Grove Gardens.
    The Fredonia native would usually take his wife to Crystal Lake Golf Course in Plymouth.
    “I would say five of the seven days in a week, at least,” his son said. “Some weeks, I bet you they went there everyday. My dad thought he won every day, but actually mom let him win a few times. That’s something they kidded about.”
    Mr. Steffen was born to Lawrence and Alice Gilson Steffen on Dec. 21, 1925.
    He married Regina Weber on Oct. 23, 1946, in Dimock, S.D.
    Mr. Steffen returned to Wisconsin to work for Wisconsin Electric Power Co. in Port Washington in the late 1940s. His son added Mr. Steffen had a lot of different jobs.
    “The one he was probably most proud of was his years at Power Products in Grafton,” his son said.
    Mr. Steffen was a long-time, active member of St. Nicholas Parish in Dacada.
    He enjoyed Wisconsin sports and supported his grandchildren in their athletic endeavors.
    Mr. Steffen also loved going to breakfast at  Mary’s Country Grove Restaurant and Hobo’s Restaurant in Belgium.
    Mr. Steffen is survived by his sons Jim (Bonnie) of Random Lake, John (Cindy) of Cedarburg, Jeff (Ann) of Cedar Grove and Jay (Lynda) of Sheboygan; 14 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren; and one great great-granddaughter.
    He is further survived by his daughter-in-law Gloria; brother-in-law Fran (Joan) Weber; and sisters-in-law Selma Weber and Bernice Steffen.
    Mr. Steffen was preceded in death by his wife Regina; son Joel; one grandson; three great-grandchildren; brothers Phil and Robert; and sister-in-law Ruth Steffen.
    A Mass of Christian burial was held Saturday, Jan. 6, at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church, St. Nicholas Chapel, in Dacada. Father Richard Cerpich officiated.
    Interment was at St. Nicholas Catholic Cemetery in Belgium.
    Memorials to the Sharon S. Richardson Hospice are appreciated.
    Eernisse Funeral Home of Port Washington handled the arrangements.
