Steven Wilmar Trapp was born on May 5, 1948, to Wilmar and Ethel (Weber) Trapp in Springfield, MN. Steven was baptized and confirmed at the Zion Lutheran Church in Sanborn, MN. He attended Sanborn Public School and graduated with the class of 1966. Steven was drafted to the Army for Vietnam in 1968 and was honorably discharged in 1970.

Steven met and fell in love with Sandra Zimmerman and the two were united in marriage on September 3, 1968, at the United Methodist Church in Sanborn. A few days later he left for Vietnam. When he returned, they purchased a home and have resided in Sanborn. Steven and Sandra were blessed with a daughter, Jean.

Steven had a 41-year career with the United States Postal Service as a Rural Route Carrier for the Springfield area. He truly did enjoy everyone he worked with, and everything about his job.

He had many hobbies throughout the years, such as camping, wood working, driving his horses and bluegrass music but his greatest past time was spending time with his family. He loved watching his grandkids and great grandkids working on projects and giving them golf cart rides.
