Family and friends are invited to gather to share memories, a few tears and to celebrate the life of Steve Metz on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at T-Bone’s Bar and Grill (400 North Central Ave) in Marshfield beginning at 1 PM. Steve requested a committal service with his siblings at a private location.

Steve was born on January 19, 1956, in Marshfield, the son of Howard and Beatrice (Buchholtz) Metz. Steve was a 1974 graduate of Marshfield Senior High. He was employed at the former Karau’s Grocery Store in Marshfield in the bakery department, later working at Johnny’s Liquor Sales in Marshfield. For many years Steve had tended bar at both Bakerville Sports Bar and Grill and at T-Bones Bar and Grill until his health would not allow him to do so.

He enjoyed building birdhouses, going camping and spending time playing Sheepshead with family and friends. Steve demonstrated his artistic ability with color in his paintings and other creations. His siblings will forever remember Steve’s unusual rendition of the dance song ”YMCA”. Their brother always wanted to have fun!

He will be greatly missed by his siblings: Nancy (Charles) Partin of Rogersville, TN, Mary Beth (Thomas) Kavanagh of Wadsworth, IL, Kathy (Gary) Schweikl of Altoona, Philip (Karen) Metz of Shawano, Greg (Cindy) Metz of Marshfield and Paul (Susette) Metz of Marshfield along with many nieces, nephews, friends and co-workers.

Steve is preceded in death by his parents: Howard and Beatrice Metz; his brothers: Howard, Jr., Michael and Joseph and his sister Peggy.
