Steven Bruce was born on May 6, 1950 the son of Max and Frances (Rueth) Langfeldt in Loyal, Wisconsin.   As a young boy, Steve and his brothers worked with their father in his business, Max Langfeldt and Sons Contractors.  He was a 1968 graduate of Loyal High School.  He had been employed as a Deputy with Clark County Sherriff Department.  For many years, he had been an insurance claims adjuster working for a variety of different businesses and later owning and operating Langfeldt Claim Service.

Steve was a man of high integrity and a workaholic.  Helping others came naturally and was part of the fabric of who he was. He was always someone who could be counted on to help others.  One of the last things Steve did on Friday morning, was come to the aid of the bus driver and students on the bus that went off the road.  Steve’s heart was full of love and kindness throughout his life and encompassed the man he was.
