    We remember Pug fondly. He was a groomsman at our wedding in 9/27/52. He was a second cousin of Barbara and they lived just a few houses from each other in Brown’s Addition.We want to extend our loving thoughts to Pug’s family.

    Pug is the best father-in-law I could ask for. So many fond memories: Grand Island, hunting, fishing, playing cards or just talking. What a colorful character everyone could sense his presence through his actions, the sound of his voice, his smile & laughter. What a storyteller he was with his own language & unique words.
    I am a better person through getting to know Pug. A devoted husband, father and grandfather – his humility, contributions to community and compassion for his fellow man will carry with me as principals in my life – his spirit remains strong.
    So many things I respect about Pug – a hard worker, dedicated to the cause; a teacher, excited to share his knowledge; treating his neighbor as he wished to be treated & his passion for enjoying life. Like Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way,” Pug did it his way and that’s what made him so special.
    On behalf of Carol, Teri, Traci, David, Loma and family, thank you for helping us celebrate Pug’s life.

    My dad “Seb” was Aunt Josie’s brother, My first recollection of Pug was when he visited Manistique to see his Uncles “Seb”, “Finn” and “Beanie”. My first rememberence was on one of his visits he had a 52 or 53 Chevrolet convertible that had a siren installed under the hood. I had the pleasure of seeing Pug and Chum many times and I always enjoyed them very much. He will be missed

    Dear Angela, Teri, Traci, Carol and families,
    I was saddened to hear of the passing of your Grampa,Dad and husband. I’m sure the Lord has a plan for him, I bet he’s standing at the top of the stairs greeting and telling jokes to the new arrivals. I will always remember his smile, it was a genuine, warm and heartfelt smile that one could tell, came from within.
    Love and hugs to all of you.

    ‘Pug’Steinhoff dead? Impossible! He lived such an active and full life, giving love and affection to everyone he knew…..always smiling and ready to offer a helping hand. ‘Pug’ gave me many ‘story leads’ for the Munising News and we shall remember him for a long, long time. The Munising area has lost a true friend and his ghost will roam here forever.

    We will surely miss Pug’s smile, friendship and caring.He was there for Mike and I when we needed someone and always had time to give his support to all. Rapid River and the Lion’s club will have a big void that will never be filled again by a person with a big heart like Pug’s.
    You are in my prayers, thoughts and a special place in my heart. God bless.
