Stephen Kent Priser, known to many as “Steve,” passed away quietly in the early hours of July 24, 2020, in his rural Nappanee home. He was 78 years old.
Born on Nov. 7, 1941, Steve was the son of Herbert and Mildred (Heeter) Priser. He was a graduate of Manchester High School and completed his education at Purdue University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Pharmacy Science. He would work as a pharmacist for many years in both Indiana and Tennessee.
Steve was a member of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Warsaw. He had a strong faith and loved the Lord. He was a loving, caring person and the father of two, grandfather of four. He enjoyed buying and selling antiques, travel (including several cruises) and local roadtrips – he was always sure to take in the scenery on the back roads.
On June 9, 1963, Steve was married to Sylvia Rickert. She preceded him in passing on Jan. 29, 2016. Blessed to find love twice, he was married to Cynthia Seward on March 3, 2017 – she survives at home. Also surviving are two children: daughter, Staci Wells and son, Shannen (Jenn) Priser and four grandchildren – all of Indianapolis.
