Jon Eric Steele, 73 years old, passed away at his Sugarmill Woods home surrounded by his family on Monday, February 6, 2017. He was born December 1, 1943 to Bud and Winnie (Anderson) Steele. He was raised and worked in Indiana until his retirement as a supervisor at Seagrams, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, with 25 years of service.
