Donald P. Steinbrecher Obituary
Don Steinbrecher passed away surrounded by his family on August 6, 2018, at Longs Peak Hospital. He was 81 years old. Don was born on April 5, 1937, in Perth Amboy, NJ, to John and Cornelia (Kocsis) Steinbrecher. He graduated from Palmyra High School in New Jersey and from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley with a degree in Business. Don served in the United States Air Force for four years as an Air Traffic Controller stationed in Newfoundland, Canada and then at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. On July 16, 1960, Don married Sharon Phelan at Blessed Sacrament Church in Aurora. They moved from Aurora to Longmont in 1964 to raise their five children. They were married almost 60 years. Don began his career at Martin Marietta before becoming an Air Traffic Controller with the Federal Government. He later entered the Data Systems industry working as a federal contractor for DISC, CSC, and WCG before his retirement. Don attended St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. As a child, he played sports and the violin, both of which fostered a lifelong love of competition and classical music. In his younger years, Don was very athletic, playing baseball, basketball, racquetball, softball, and running. He enjoyed gardening and hiking, climbing many 14er's. As a spectator, Don was especially fond of the Denver Broncos and St. Louis Cardinals. He was also an avid bridge player and golfer. Don was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers John and Robert Steinbrecher, and his daughter Shelley Allen.
