Steven was born February 8, 1971 in St. Cloud to Frank and JoAnn (Fisher) Schrader. He graduated from Holdingford High School in 1989, Steven was brilliant beyond his 12 years of education. Steven worked at Graphic Printing Solutions for over 10 years as a “Jack of all trades.” He was engaged to marry the love of his life, best friend, and soulmate, JohAnna Christensen. Steven walked strongly in his faith and was a member of Joy Christian Center in St. Cloud; where he was active in Monday Men’s Group, and Bible Study. He enjoyed fishing, collecting matchbox cars, and most importantly spending time with his family. Steven will be remembered for his loving, kind, gentle heart; that would do anything for anyone.
