Steven Ralph Holscher

Steven Ralph Holscher was born August 29, 1943 to Ralph and Margaret (Ulmer) Holscher. He was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Boy Scouts of America and attended Rockhurst and Raytown High Schools where he played football.

Steve was also a member of the Marine Corps. He asked his parents to sign for him to enlist in May of 1961, just months shy of his 18th birthday. Steve served along his friend John, who would eventually go on to marry Steve’s sister, Patty. In 1965, Steve returned from service and married Carolene. The couple went on to have four daughters-Tammie, Lorrie, Wendie, and Tracie. Steve, Carol and the girls enjoyed many summer adventures at the lake that included camping, boating, skiing, and making wonderful memories with family and friends.

After the military, Steve drove for Orscheln Bros. until they closed and continued driving over the road for Continental Bakery. He enjoyed being a truck driver, but loved retiring at age 55 even more. He continued to do side jobs post retirement, and was always available to help a friend move or repair something.

Shortly after the first grandchild, Steve and his son-in-law Curt put in a swimming pool. Steve enjoyed spending his summers teaching his grandchildren to swim and hosting pool parties with Carol for family and friends.

In 2018, he moved to Chilhowee and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the country. Steve looked forward to weekends with his grandson Cameron, who would come out and stay with him. He also enjoyed sitting on his back porch swing, listening to his country music with all of the grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his dogs.

Steve didn’t know a stranger and he was always there for everyone. His love and lessons will be greatly missed.

Steve is survived by his daughter Tammie Albin; four grandchildren: Cameron, Austin, Amanda, and Kegan; and four great-grandchildren: Lincoln, Halen, Grayson, and Quinn.

Graveside services will be held at 12:00pm Friday, April 5, 2024 at Mt. Olivet, Raytown, MO.

    Reading your dads obituary brought back lots of fun memories. Your mom and dad with my mom and dad and John and Patty. We all went to lake, mushroom hunting, frog hunting, fishing and eating all that good stuff.
    There was always a reason to get together, celebrate and eat together, even snuck some sips of homemade wine.
    I am truly sorry for your loss. But take comfort that he has lots of good company in Heaven.
