Steve was born March 15, 1950, in David City to Joseph F. and Emily (Rolenc) Plasek.  He attended St. Mary's Grade School and graduated from Aquinas High School in 1968.  On September 19, 1970, he married Julie Swantek at St. Rose of Lima Church in Genoa.  To this union five children were born.  They lived in Columbus from 1970-1972 and moved back to David City to  help on the family farm.  Steve worked in maintenance for Lincoln Telephone for several years and continued farming as well.  He raised and was very proud of his cattle.  He put much effort into the genetics of his herd.  Steve had a rare kidney disease and was on dialysis for seven months until receiving a life-giving kidney from his sister Cheryl inJune of 1992, at the Mayo  Clinic.  He was a longtime member of St. Mary's Church and the Knights of Columbus.  He enjoyed cattle and farming, time in the garden, playing cards (especially Taroks) and watching old westerns--John Wayne "the Duke" most of all. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing as well.  Later in life he spent much of his time with Julie, going to events such as the local duck dinners and traveling.  Together they especially enjoyed time with the family and attending all the activities of the grandchildren.

Steve is survived by his wife of 52 years, Julie Plasek and their children; Kevin (Colleen) Plasek of Papillion, Victoria (Richard) Hain of David Cty, Cynthia (Ryan) Stara of Lincoln, Steven F. Plasek and his significant other Victoria Bravo of Lincoln,  Laura (Shaun) Warriner of  Bruno and 15 grandchildren.  Also surviving are his sisters Katherine (Dean) Wesch of Cedar Bluffs, Cheryl Plasek  and Margaret Plasek, both of David City, brothers Jerome (Deb)  Plasek of Lincoln,  Timothy Plasek of David City, nieces,nephews and other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Joe G.
