Steven Daskam — Harmony
HARMONY — The funeral for Steven Daskam will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Greenfield Lutheran Church in Harmony. Burial will be in State Line Cemetery, rural Harmony.
Mr. Daskam, 18, died of injuries sustained in an automobile accident on Wednesday (May 28, 2008).
Steven Gerald Daskam was born Sept. 12, 1989, in Cresco, Iowa. He had just graduated from Fillmore Central High School in Harmony, where he was involved in Knowledge Bowl, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Pep Band, One-Act Play, Speech, TNT, SADD, and Meals on Wheels. He was also a member of the National Honor Society, was a three-year member of the Fillmore Falcon Scholar Club, was on the National Honor Roll, and participated in the Spring Theatre Production. As a student he received many awards, including the Christopher Bishop Science Award; National English Merit Award; National Society of High School Scholars; United States Achievement Academy; and the Who’s Who Among High School Students.
He helped his dad on the farm and had worked at Niagara Cave. He also helped out with the annual United Methodist Beef Dinner. Most of all he loved school, and his hunger for knowledge drove him to good grades and a great relationship with the faculty at Fillmore Central High School. He also loved the Class of 2008.
He is survived by his parents, Charles and Deborah Daskam; a brother, Matthew still at home; a grandmother, Doris Daskam of Cresco; and a grandfather, Richard Bowman of Rochester. Other survivors include many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by a grandfather and a grandmother.
Friends may call from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at Lindstrom Funeral Home in Harmony, and an hour before the service Saturday at Greenfield Lutheran Church.
