Clarence R. Steiner
87, of Massillon, died Friday, August 11, 2017. Born in Orrville, Ohio, July 1, 1930, a son to the late Earl A. and Elizabeth Mae (Amstutz) Steiner, when he was two, the family moved to a farm east of Marshallville. Better known by his nickname, “Bud,” he attended Doylestown schools and graduated as Salutatorian of his class in 1948. While in high school he was active in speech and drama and went to many tournaments for debate and public speaking. He was also co-editor of the yearbook. Following graduation, he continued farming until the time of his marriage to the former Jean Eggeman, in June 1955. At the same time he left the family farm, moved to Dalton and began a two-year enlistment with the US Army.
Returning to the area following his time in the service, Bud worked in construction and installing heating and air conditioning for several years. He retired from the Adams Sign Co. in 1995, where he became shop manager while also doing estimates and inside sales. The family formerly attended Holy Trinity Lutheran Church but more recently returned to St. Michael's Lutheran Church in Marshallville, where Bud and Jean were married 62 years ago. Following his retirement, Bud was very active in the church community as a volunteer, serving on the church council and several other committees. He was always there to help when help was needed. He did lawn work and cut trees for his friends and neighbors and was the neighborhood Mr. Fix It. He also delivered Meals on Wheels. Bud did extensive genealogy research and dated the Steiners and Amstutzs back to the middle 1600's and had written the histories of the Steiner, Amstutz and Eggeman families. He and Jean worked at the Kidron Heritage Center for many years. Together they enjoyed Square Dancing and attending Bluegrass and Country-Western concerts and had traveled throughout much of the US and Canada.
Predeceased by his parents; a daughter, Kathy Marie Steiner; and two sisters and their husbands, Hazel and Richard Smucker and Myrt and Ed Zahner; Bud is survived by his loving wife, Jean; sons, Rich, of the home, Randy and his wife, Liza, and their children, Shawn, Olivia and Jared, all of Mitford, CT and Rusty and his wife, Lori and their daughter, Rachel, all of Massillon; brothers and sisters-in-law, Tilden (Mary deceased), Wilbur and Betty, Bruce and Helen and Don and Ruth; sisters and brothers-in-law, Mary (Lester deceased) Horner, Dorothy (Bill) Shoup and Judy (Bill) Miller.
