Jeffrey C. (Asplund) Steury, 63, of Suttons Bay, passed away unexpectedly, Saturday, August 6, 2022.
Jeff came into the world on February 25, 1959, in Ann Arbor, MI and grew up in Big Rapids, MI on the family farm on Townline Lake. He graduated from Big Rapids High School in 1977. After graduation, Jeff lived in Southern California before moving to his beloved state of Minnesota, where he earned a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota St Paul.
Jeff spent his career as a biochemist and guru consultant where he actively developed programming and process automation for several bio-tech companies in the Midwest and East Coast.
For the last several years, Jeff resided in Suttons Bay, MI where he developed and nurtured long lasting friendships, stimulating debates, and fireworks shows with many in the Leelanau Peninsula community. Jeff was an avid admirer of nature, a frequent scolder of conspiracy theories, and a good friend to all. He will be dearly missed by family and friends.
Jeff is survived by his mother Ann Steury of Hersey, MI; sister Beth Asplund of Evart, MI; brother Nate Asplund of Pittsburgh, PA; two nieces Sophie and Karen Asplund of Pittsburgh, PA and Jacksonville, FL; his father Charles Asplund of Muskegon, MI; and the Thom Steury family of Mission Viejo, CA.
