Steve was born in Montevideo, Minnesota to Ronald and JoAnn (Brink) Molde. He graduated from Montevideo High School in 1982. Steve married Sheila Slagter on Dec. 27, 1985 at Hope Reformed Church in Montevideo. He was a graduate of SDSU with a degree in nursing and received his anesthesia training from Mayo School of Health Related Science in Rochester. He was employed as an anesthetist for Anesthesia Associates in St. Cloud for 22 years. He was an active member of Atonement Lutheran Church. For the past 17 years, Steve was a leader in Scouting, serving as a scout master, committee chair, unit commissioner, and was a mentor to many scouts. He loved sailing, hiking, motorcycling, camping, biking, geocaching, canoeing, boating and tennis. He particularly enjoyed the peace of the Boundary Waters and Isle Royale. Steve had a great sense of humor and was always friendly and talkative. He could make a great rhubarb dessert! Steve loved spending time with his family and throwing treats for Potter.
Survivors include his loving wife, Sheila; sons, Joseph (fiancée Carly Dooley) of St. Paul, and Adam of St. Cloud; parents, Ronald and JoAnn of Montevideo; brothers, Brian of St. Paul, and Nathan (Darci) of Montevideo; mother-in-law, Ruth Slagter of Montevideo; sisters and brothers-in-law, Nancy Schoep (Arvin), Susan Slagter (Jeff Dean), Kay Westlie, and numerous nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Luther Crest Bible Camp, Atonement Lutheran Church, or Many Point Scout Camp. The family is very thankful for all the prayers that are holding us up at this time.
