Steve was born in Germany to Anthony Jr. and Margrette (Krick) Millner, on November 14, 1957. He was raised in Mandan and a graduate of Mandan High School. He married Joan Silbernagel June 29, 1992. They celebrated 25 years of marriage last summer.
Steve completed 21 years with the Army National Guard as a sergeant and served in the US Army from 1980-1984. He worked for the State of North Dakota for over 25 years.
He enjoyed the outdoors, going fishing, helping on the family farm and found a love later in life for traveling to different parks in North Dakota.
He’s always had a fondness for classic cars, owning and working on various auto projects throughout his life. One of his proudest cars was his “Black Beast,” which he was often found cruising throughout the town with a big smile on his face.
Steve was a jokester, with a contagious laugh. He had a heart full of gold for his family and pets. He will be dearly missed.
