Obituary for Steven James Slager

Steven James Slager, age 49, of Lake Villa, passed away at his home on June 21, 2018. He was born to Ronald H. and Desiree A. (Bugyie) Slager on April 8, 1969 in Camp Lejeune, NC.

In his early years, Steven attained the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop #179 of Fox Lake and attended Round Lake High School, where he wrestled, and played football and baseball. Steven earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Columbia College of Missouri. He was employed by First State Bank of Round Lake and Washington Mutual prior to his most recent position as a manager at Dovenmuehle Mortgage in Lake Zurich.

Steven was an avid sports fan and cheered on all of Chicago’s teams, especially the Bears and the Cubs, and he had a great time playing fantasy football and baseball, and hosting tailgate parties for his friends and neighbors. He knew good food and was a certified Kansas City BBQ Society Judge. In his free time, Steven indulged in a game of golf, a quiet fishing trip, bowling, home improvement projects, and perfecting both his vegetable garden and his baby back ribs.

Steven, a man who would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it, will be remembered lovingly by all who had the opportunity to know him.

In addition to his parents, Steven leaves behind the love of his life, Cheryl Silva; his sister, Janice (Chris) Bleimund of Medinah, IL; two nephews, Hans and Maxx; two nieces, Claudia and Anna; and his and Cheryl's cherished Shelties, Brody and Duchess.

Steven was preceded in death by his and Cheryl's beloved Sheltie, Katy Sue.
