Earl L. Steves

Earl L. Steves, 71, of State Route 4, Whitehall, passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2009 at the Glens Falls Hospital with his loving family at his side.

He was born on Nov. 28, 1937 in Whitehall on his family dairy farm, which he later purchased from his parents and operated for over 50 years.  Earl’s love was being a dairy farmer and after his retirement he went to work for Champlain Stone until his illness.

He enjoyed fishing with his family and most of all being outdoors.  He loved spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren and they referred to him as "Poppie" or "Pop".  He will always be missed by his three loving companions, his dogs, Lila, Bug and Riley.

Earl is predeceased by his parents, Lee and Agnes (Wood) Steves.

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 38 years, Judy (Spaulding) Bennett Steves, his five children, Nicholas Steves of Whitehall, Gail Mead and her husband, Matthew of Granville, Brenda Mihulka and her husband, Richard of Hudson Falls, Kevin Steves and his wife, Paula of Whitehall and Scott Bennett and his wife, Pennie of Queensbury; his loving grandchildren, Fred Williams, III, Jason Mead, Amanda Tracy, Chelsea Steves, Cassie Steves, Brandon Steves, Zachary Bennett, Dylan Bennett and Ricki Mihulka; two great grandchildren, Tristen Foote and Leah Tracy; his brothers, Ernie Steves and George Steves ; and three sisters which include his twin sister, Elsie Parker , Ethel Winning and Doris Sutherland and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service was conducted on Saturday, January 10, 2009 at 2 p.m. at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall, New York by Rev. John Greenough, Pastor, officiating.  Family and friends were invited to call at the funeral home from 1 p.m. to the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested that expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Earl’s name to a charity of one’s choice.
