Michael Jay Steffen died unexpectedly on Thursday, May 18, 2023 due to complications from surgery.

Born in Livingston on May 1, 1953, to Russell and Mary Steffen, Mike was the second of three children. The family lived near Green Acres. His father Russell worked for Northern Pacific, and his mother Mary cared for the family. From an early age, Mike loved being outdoors and enjoying everything his home state had to offer, including hiking and camping, and joining his father on packtrips (which did nothing to dissuade him from a dislike of horses).
