April 9, 1932 – May 6, 2023
It is with great sadness the family of Harold Steckler announce his passing at the Hospice at Glengarda on May 6, at the age of 91.

Dad had an entrepreneurial spirit, was a talented woodworker and enjoyed many hours creating intarsia projects upon his retirement. He was also a talented builder and built their first home in Saskatoon, and in later years built the family cabin as well as a home at Wakaw Lake.
Dad was a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather and will be remembered by sons Brian (Alice), Bill (Gloria) grandsons Mark (Bobbi), Matthew (Stephanie), granddaughters Maeghan (Jared) and Breann, great-grandchildren Novak, Niko, Jack, Emily and Claire.
