Steven "Skip" Springer, 81, of Noblesville, passed away on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Riverview Health in Noblesville. He was born on November 29, 1937 to Clyde and Evelyn (Harris) Springer in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Steve was a 1956 graduate of Howe High School and studied sales & marketing at Purdue and Indiana Universities. He was a salesman for over 35 years for Elanco (Lilly), Dow Elanco and J.F. Oakes. Steve was a devoted husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, son, son-in-law, brother, uncle, and friend. He shared an amazing life of over 60 years with his wife, Arlyne, enjoying family, traveling, and making wonderful memories. Steve spent his days supporting his family and enjoying his time with his grandchildren, going to and encouraging their various activities. He never knew a stranger and was always ready to lend a helping hand in any way he could.
Steve enjoyed coordinating and participating in lunches and reunions with high school friends, and regularly ushered at Noblesville First United Methodist Church, where he was a member. He was an amazing salesman and loved sharing stories. Steve had a gift of never hesitating to pick up the phone to reconnect with someone and/or plan a get together. He attended the Indianapolis 500 every year for over 50 years and enjoyed riding in an Indy-style car just a few years ago at top speed at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Steve will be dearly missed, and our memories will be deeply cherished.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Arlyne Springer; children, Christine Springer, Cara (Brian) Hutson, and Vincent (Staci) Springer; and four grandchildren, Trinity, Audrey, Tristan and Jack.
In addition to his parents, Steve was preceded in death by his sister, and an infant 3-year-old brother.
