Steven Edsel Easter

March 12, 1954 — February 17, 2024

Canfield

Steven Edsel Easter, beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend, went home to be with the Lord on February 17, 2024, at the age of 69. He leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and laughter that will be cherished by all those who knew him. 

Born in Greenfield, OH,  on March 12, 1954,  Steve was the son of Norman Edsel and Georgia Pauline (Williamson) Easter. He grew up in Greenfield. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a BS/MS in Physical Therapy, Steve embarked on a successful career and was a dedicated owner of Fayette Physical Therapy in Washington Court House, OH.  He was respected for his integrity and hard work by his colleagues, clients, and community alike. 


On June 30, 1979, Steve married the love of his life Louise Chizmar. Together, they shared 44 wonderful years filled with joy, adventure, and unwavering devotion. Their bond was a shining example of commitment and partnership, and their love grew stronger with each passing year. 

As a father, Steve was a source of endless support, wisdom, and encouragement. He took great pride in his children, Sarah, Maggie, and Daniel. He delighted in their accomplishments and cherished every moment spent together as a family. In Steve's own words, his proudest achievements included “finding the perfect wife and raising three great children to become productive tax paying citizens.”  

In addition to his dedication to his family and career, Steve was a Lay Leader of the Millcreek Community Methodist Church, a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles 3298, a Member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, and was known for his passion for travel, swimming, fishing, and spending time at his home in Florida.

  

Steve is survived by his devoted wife, Louise (Chizmar) Easter; his children, Lt. Colonel Sarah Louise Easter Strayer and husband Grant Strayer of Killeen, TX, Margaret Rita (Easter) and husband Jeremiah Glennon of Chicago, IL, Daniel Steven Easter of Mishawaka, IN; his grandchildren, Remi Daniel Glennon and Avis Steven Glennon of Chicago, IL; his sisters, Cynthia Easter, Donna Lawless, Lora Bracken (Ron), Mona Habig Horlacher (Jim); his brothers Kenneth Easter, Glenn Easter, Tim Easter (Crystal), and Mike Easter. Steve was predeceased by his parents, sisters Georgia Kay Easter and Linda Lou Easter, sister-in-law Linda Easter and brother-in-law Lonnie Lawless. He also leaves a large loving family of in-laws, including his mother-in-law, Margaret (Meenachan) Chizmar of Canfield; many nieces and nephews; and many friends in Ohio and Florida. 


A celebration of Steve's life will be officiated by his dear friend and pastor Rev. Greg Calko on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Millcreek Community Methodist Church at 4570 Lockwood Blvd., Youngtown, OH 44511. Family visitation will be 1pm-2pm in the church foyer with services beginning at 2pm.  Directly after the services a luncheon will be served in the church hall.

Though he may be gone from our sight, Steve's spirit will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. May he rest in peace, knowing that he was cherished beyond measure and that his legacy will endure for generations to come.
