Dorothy, Brad, Cindy and Brenda, I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I had the pleasure to work with Stony in my early insurance career in the Mayville Insurance Agency and also the PIA of WI Association. I feel I was very fortunate to be able to work under his direction for several years.

Stony was one great professional in the Wisconsin Insurance industry; he was very knowledgeable, determined and particular but at the same time a soft spoken man. His smile said 1,000 words.

He was a wonderful inspiration and mentor to me, and will be greatly missed.

I would like to express my deep sympathy to the family of Stony Steinbach. I met Stony while installing telephone service at his cottage in Rush Lake a number of years ago. While only meeting and knowing Stony a very short time, he impressed me as being a very knowledgeable, kind, caring, gentle, fun loving, and loving life kind of individual. Stony impressed me as the kind of man that one automatically respects after just shaking his hand, a man of integrity, a man one could trust. After meeting thousands of customers throughout the years, Stony is one of the handful that truly standout in my memory.

My Deepest condolences on the loss of you loved one.

Even thou I only got to know Stoney for a short time I feel blessed to have that time. I got to talk to him and as a fellow Brewers fan see how much he got out of his time down at Fantasy camp. He would lite up when talking about those times. He will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.
