Stephen N. “Steve” Liebert, 80, died unexpectedly Sunday, November 12, 2023. He was born February 21, 1943, in Green Bay to the late Norman and Ruth (Kansier) Liebert.
Steve attended St. Paul Lutheran Grade School, was a graduate of Green Bay East High School, Class of 1961, and later graduated from UW Oshkosh. Little did Steve know, when he met Sandra “Sandy” Howey at St. Paul Lutheran’s two room grade school, that they would marry on August 21, 1966, and be together for 57 years.
Since Steve was a child, he worked for his father at Bosse’s, the family business of which he later became the owner. Steve never planned to retire. Up until his death he was very involved in the family business and loved interacting with customers and sharing stories about “the good old days”.
Steve was a very active and lifelong member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Daily devotions, worship, and Bible classes were a very important part of Steve and Sandy’s lives. His faith and service to the Lord were very evident.
He had a love of sports. When younger, Steve played baseball, basketball, and later coached those sports for many years. He enjoyed watching Brewers and Packers games and especially his five grandkids’ sporting events and activities. Steve loved to spend his time smoking a cigar outside while watching the birds and deer. He will be remembered as a selfless person who was full of life, had a great sense of humor, who was caring and always putting others before himself.
Steve is survived by his wife, Sandy; his children, Lisa (Steven) Mitchell, Scott (Jane) Liebert, and Amy (Tom) Plagenz; his five grandchildren, Kayla Mitchell, Maddie and Jack Liebert, and Emily and Ella Plagenz; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Carolyn Brunner, and a brother-in-law, Ken Howey.
