Obituary for Harry Dale Steele

Harry Dale Steele passed away on August 5th in his McMinnville, Oregon home. Harry was born in Danville, Illinois on August 11, 1937 to Ted and Kay Steele and had 2 brothers, 2 sisters and 2 half-brothers. He’s survived by his son Jerry, his two daughters Vikki and April, 21 grandkids and their spouses and 13 great grandkids, as well as countless friends that he considered family.

Harry joined the Army in his senior year at Sherwood High School then proudly served both overseas and domestically. After being honorably discharged, he met and married the love of his life, Phyllis Lee Lacey on April 4th, 1959. They raised their family in Sherwood until his retirement when they moved to McMinnville.

Harry was a man who loved without any expectation. One of the things Harry enjoyed doing was going to garage sales, collecting an array of different things for everyone - from marbles to giraffes, smoking pipes to little things that would bring him or someone he loved a bit of joy.

From the kid he was to the man he became, Harry was a dad, grandpa, son, brother, uncle, cousin, friend, and all around wonderful, devoted man who will be greatly missed. But most of all, we will miss his hugs.
