Lawrence W. Steimer

(Continued)

GASPORT —

His love for horses gave him great pleasure. He opened the Steimer Argent Stables and provided therapeutic horseback riding programs for handicapped children. He even taught blind children how to water and downhill ski as well; with equipment he designed and made by his Amish friends. He was also known to get the bride to the church on time in his beautifully refurbished Landau Carriage and Postilion horses.
Larry is survived by his sister, Ruth Ann O'Stewart of Florida. He was predeceased by his wife, Elisabeth; and his brothers, George (Lorraine) and Robert (Erma) Steimer. He survived by several nieces, nephews and close friends from both the Gasport and Amish communities.
