Steve also worked at Gold'n Plump in Cold Spring for 26 years, retiring in 2009.

He was a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Grey Eagle. Steve was mechanically inclined and enjoyed working on vehicles, plumbing, and electrical wiring. He loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Survivors include his children, Heather Ostendorf (friend, Eric Douglas) of St. Cloud and Nathan Ostendorf (fiancé, Lorena Barrera) of Sauk Centre; grandchildren, Bailey, Annica, and Sophia; mother and step-father, Joanne Heffron and Richard Heffron of Grey Eagle; and many loving relatives and friends.

Steve was preceded in death by his grandparents, Bernard and Matilda Ostendorf; Godparents, Wilfred and Juletta Ostendorf; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

A special thank you to Dr. Al-Khatib and the staff at the Coborn Cancer Center, the staff at St. Cloud Hospital, and Sauk Centre Hospice for all of their care and compassion.
