Danny was born on November 8, 1956, to Orvin “Buddy” and Elsie (Hagen) Steen, in Sioux Falls, SD. He was a 1976 graduate of Willow Lake High School, Willow Lake, SD. Danny resided in Watertown the majority of his life. He worked at Highway 20 Sinclair, Miracle Steel and Faultless Nutting, all in Watertown.
He was the kind of person who would drop anything to help anybody. Always being very organized, he took pictures and videos of everything. One of Danny’s greatest passions was building things, some of his favorites being fire pits and go-karts. Danny was a very dedicated worker, hardly ever missing a day of work. He enjoyed camping, fishing, fabricating, creating and building just about anything and everything. Danny loved riding his motorcycle, traveling and going to Sturgis. His special joy was attending all of his children and grandchildren's activities and sporting events.
Danny is survived by his children: Matthew (Tara) Steen of Watertown, SD, Robert Steen of Sioux Falls, SD, Jennifer (Mark) Zens of Mitchell, SD, Michelle (Fiancé Glen Rushing) Steen of Brandon, MS and Megan (Tyler) Walford of Pearl, MS; his grandchildren: Corbyn, Madyson, Evie, Gavyn, Isaac, Layla, Macy, Owen and Olivia; his brothers: Lanny (Pam) Steen of Larchwood, IA, Rich (Terri) Steen of Watertown, SD, and Mike Steen of Sioux Falls, SD; and his sisters: Carmen (Bob) Schmidt of Altoona, WI, and Connie Hays of Yutan, NE.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
