Steven Ray “Steve” Finton, 62, of Quincy, passed away on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at his home in Quincy, Illinois.
Steve was born on February 6, 1957, in Keokuk, Iowa, the son of Robert E. and Mary Jane (Coffman) Finton. He was united in marriage to Roberta “Bobbie” Phillips. She survives.
Steve was a member of Madison Park Christian Church in Quincy and spent his working career at Gates Air and Dot Foods. His job at Gates Air took him all over, allowing him to see the world. When he wasn’t working, Steve enjoyed spending time outdoors, watching wildlife and riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He built impressive model trains in his basement, complete with handmade scenery. His greatest joy in life, however, were his grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.
Steve is survived by his wife Bobbie Finton of Quincy, Illinois; two sons: Brian Finton of Alaska and Brandon (Cassie) Grunewald of Warsaw, Illinois; two daughters: Sara (LaRenzo) Clay of Keokuk, Iowa; and Rachael (Scott) Vaughan of Quincy; two sisters: Mary (Don) Macintosh and Carrie (Randy) Hutson; four brothers: Robert “Bob” Finton, Timothy Finton, Thomas Finton and Mathew (Cara) Finton; and ten grandchildren. Other survivors include many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Steve is preceded in death by his parents and his brother John Finton.
