John Scott Steiner

Over the years Scott and Trudie made their home in Prior Lake, MN, while raising their family and then moving off to Scottsdale, AZ and Ettrick, WI., where they made many cherished friends along the way.

He was a collector of many things like coin banks, knives and lighters. He was a lover of Nascar, his dogs and classic cars. He was active in the Eagles Club and visiting other FOE’s across the states.
