Steve Angell grew up in Eagle Grove, Iowa, and graduated from Eagle Grove High School. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Upper Iowa University. After graduation from college, he began teaching and coaching in the Des Moines School District. He also taught and coached in Decorah before returning to Des Moines.
In 2011, Steve decided to change careers, and went through the DMACC Mortuary Science program. He began working at Hamilton’s Funeral Home in Des Moines, and his adventures in funeral service took him to the Chicago area, where he worked for Wenban Funeral Home in Lake Forest, IL. When he became a Papa to two beautiful granddaughters, he decided he needed to be closer to family and moved to Cedar Rapids where he worked for Cedar Memorial. Steve then seized the opportunity to combine his passion for teaching and his passion for funeral service and became an instructor for the program that taught him about funeral service.
Outside of work, Steve enjoys the St Louis Cardinals, and his bucket list includes visiting every major league park in the country. As a former coach, he enjoys women’s basketball in particular, claiming to be the biggest Tennessee Volunteer fan in the area. He also enjoys spending time with his daughter Katie and her husband Kyle and his two granddaughters Charlotte and Claire. Steve is also a HUGE University of Northern Iowa Panther fan.
