Steven L. Versnik

Steven L. Versnik, age 68, passed away at his home on Monday, January 25, 2021. He was born on November 2, 1952, the son of Lewis and Margaret (Schneider) Versnik.

Steve graduated from Verona High School in 1970, and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. On April 29, 1972, he was united in marriage to Deborah Eichelkraut at the Zwingli United Church of Christ-Paoli. Steve owned and operated Paoli Manufacturing for over 30 years. During his time in Verona, he was active in the Jaycees and served as their president. After moving to the Belleville area in 1980, he became actively involved in Scouting, serving as Troop 61 committee chair, and helping his sons and many others become Eagle Scouts. For the Town of Montrose, he had served on the Long-Range Planning and Lake Belle View Restoration committees. He was an avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed his time "Up North" at the cabin. Through his love of fishing, he had restored and donated numerous fishing rods and tackle boxes for the Cops and Bobbers program in Belleville. Despite his numerous commitments to his business and community, Steve remained a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and fan of the Packers, Brewers, and Badgers.

Steve is survived by his wife, Debbie; children, Amy (Ron) Versnik Nowak, Randy (Melissa) Versnik, and Bryan (Mandy) Versnik; grandchildren, Grace, Miles, Jordy, and Kody Versnik. He is further survived by his sisters, Mary (Jim) Gibson and Cindy (Mike) Cummings; mother-in-law, Rachel Eichelkraut; brothers-in-law, Harold Jr. (Jeannie) Eichelkraut and Greg (Linda Becker) Eichelkraut; nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and father-in-law, Harold Eichelkraut Sr.
