Roger Gilbert Steinacker

The Dundalk Eagle - - OBITUARIES -

BEL AIR — Roger Gilbert Steinacker, 77, of Bel Air, MD, died at home on July 27, 2020. The sixth of 10 chil­dren, Roger was born on Jan­uary 29, 1943, in Spar­rows Point, MD, to Anna (Fred­er­ick) Steinacker.

After be­ing dis­charged from the Army in 1964, Roger met Dot (Wat­son) Steinacker on a blind date in the sum­mer of 1967. They eloped in 1968 and this year cel­e­brated their 52nd an­niver­sary. An elec­tri­cian by trade, Roger also worked tire­lessly on his own home, con­stantly mak­ing im­prove­ments. On the oc­ca­sions when he wasn’t work­ing hard, he en­joyed read­ing, work­ing in his gar­den, and float­ing in the pool with his fam­ily. He was a role model for his two daugh­ters, whom he al­ways be­lieved in and en­cour­aged. Roger could soothe any fussy baby, and he loved an­i­mals, once rais­ing an in­jured baby robin to adult­hood. He loved his dogs, es­pe­cially Vince, Sara, and Bon­nie.

Along with his wife Dot, Roger is sur­vived by his daugh­ter, Erica Stoecker and her hus­band Ted of

Re­ston, VA; his daugh­ter, To­nia Morssink and her hus­band Peter of Bel Air, MD; and his grand­son,

Liam Ja­nis.

He is also sur­vived by seven si­b­lings and nu­mer­ous nieces and nephews.

The fam­ily will ar­range a cel­e­bra­tion of life at a time to be de­ter­mined. In lieu of send­ing flow­ers to the fam­ily, please con­sider mak­ing a do­na­tion to the Ceme­tery Funds of Cokes­bury United Methodist Church at PO Box 85, Abing­don, MD, 21009, or Piney Plains United Methodist Church, 13203 Mann Road NE, Lit­tle Or­leans, MD 21766.

Roger will be re­mem­bered as a per­son with a kind heart who adored his wife and chil­dren, made friends ev­ery­where he went, and brought a gen­tle touch to the world.

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be to­gether, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there for­ever.” -A.A. Milne
