Stephen Trusten

Author: Beloved and forever thankful children

Age 63

Stephen Mark Trusten (Dad, Padre, Grandpa, Pa or Papa) was born on November 14, 1957, in St. Paul, MN. Suddenly passed away at the age of 63. Preceded in death by his parents Wilfred Trusten and Joan Trusten, his brothers James and Bill Trusten. He is survived by his brother John Trusten (Patti), two children Shawn (Angie) and Jessica (Brian), and his own children, Paul Trusten (Amy VanGuilder), James Trusten, Stephanie Nerios (Antonio Nerios IV), and Matthew Trusten. Also, his adoring grandchildren; Jacob Kapaun, Alyssa Kapaun, Emma Nerios, Amelia Nerios, Logan VanGuilder, Sawyer Trusten, Antonio Nerios V, and Brielle Nerios.

Steve was an extremely proud father of his four children and eight grandchildren. He was an extraordinary IT expert and Supervisor at 3M. Steve enjoyed a very simple life that many will never understand. He enjoyed Wild Turkey, fishing, playing crossword puzzles and Words with Friends with family. He was the epitome of the Christmas Spirit with his 100+ nutcrackers, crazy outfits and decorations and music that would put Rockefeller Center to shame. He spent most of his time listening to music in the kitchen while preparing food, whether it was making a simple meal to feed his children or a feast that could feed the entire McDonough family! His amazing barbecue sauces and delicious holiday chocolates were shared with the world. Steve was idolized by his children and his grandchildren. He always cared for everyone around him, stranger or not and even “adopted” some extras as his own children. There will never be another man on this Earth who loved to help so many people and expect nothing in return and who was loved by so many, without ever realizing what impressions he left behind.
