Carroll "Cal" Arthur Steunenberg of Morrisville, passed away on May 21, 2009 at 2:00 a.m. at Citizen's Memorial Hospital following a sudden illness. Cal was born May 19, 1913 in Caldwell, Idaho to Julian Pope and Frances Wood Steunenberg. He was the middle of five children. Cal was the grandson of the fourth Governor of Idaho, Frank Steunenberg, who was assassinated in 1905.

Cal was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Jule and Frank "Bud" Steunenberg, and one sister, Doris Knowles. He was also preceded in death by two children, Raymond Arthur and Maureen May.

Cal grew up in Idaho, Washington, and California, where, during the Great Depression, he joined the CCC using his older brother's name and went to work to try to help support his family. Eventually, Cal became a Batallion Sergeant Major in the United States Army and served as a radio operator in the South Pacific during World War II. He worked for Mobile Oil as an electrician following his honorable discharge from the Army, where he received several medals and awards for conduct and service. Cal (W6WFV) also held a HAM Radio operator's license with the Federal Communications Commission for more than 65 years and was a member of the American Radio Relay League for more than 40 years.

Cal moved from California to Missouri to live with his granddaughter, Sheri and her family in 2001. He has enjoyed many years of laughter, love, and happiness in the company of his family and will be dearly missed every single day.

Cal leaves behind his beloved granddaughter, Sheri Beersman, of Morrisville and her husband Wes, his cherished great grand children, LCpL Christopher Cable, USMC and his wife Reagan, both of Morrisville, Lauren Cable, of Willard and her fiancÚ, Shawn Cook of Brighton, and Danielle Beersman, of Morrisville.
