Title: The "Glue Guy"passes
Post by: George Roof on November 13, 2016, 05:56:54 PM
With a great deal of sorrow, I have to post the passing of my dear friend Steve Steinbring. I credit him with bringing epoxies into taxidermy. He passed suddenly after a DVT and embolism to his lungs. Plans are not yet completed but please add his wife Jan and his son Erik and family in your prayers.

My Sympathies to his Family. I was fortunate enough to talk with him several times - and he always had good products. Taxidermy will miss his input. We'll say a Prayer for him! Thanks for the Post George

Thank you for your condolences, prayers and thoughts.  I am at work making glue and filling orders.  Dad's favorite term was "Press On" and that is exactly what we are doing.  His legacy lives on!


Do Not Stand At my Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there.  I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond that glints on the snow
I am the sunlight ripened on grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

So sad to hear about Steve. We had a lot of fun over the years cutting up about initiating the eject sequence whenever things were going bad. He always said if you made it, you had to get right back up and take off again as soon as possible. I learned a lot of valuable things from Steve. We will all miss him.

although I havent heard from him in years, I can easily recall his voice in my mind. He was always promoting a good adhesive while creating a new method. His product was good and he was a people person to go along with it. This is sad news to hear. To Erik and family, my condolences. Steve was one of those really good guys.
