WEEMS—Stuart Jack Steensma, 90, of Weems went to be with our Lord August 14, 2023. He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Helen Steensma; their daughter, Karen Boen; and great-grandson, Jackson Steensma.
He is survived by his sons and their families, George Steensma (Mary), Russell Steensma (Barbara), Stuart Steensma Jr. (Michele), Inge Boen and Richard Steensma (Christy); many nieces and nephews; 14 grandchildren and their families.
Stu, as he liked to be called, worked most of his career for the George A. Fuller Company as a project manager building skyscrapers. Some of his efforts included overseeing the renovation of a building for The Cooper Union College in lower Manhattan, New York, and the construction of the Exxon headquarters in midtown Manhattan, the Veterans Hospital in the Bronx, and the pair of USA Today buildings in Rosslyn, along with many others in the DC and New York areas.
He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was a humble, faithful servant of God who instilled in us the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ for eternal salvation.
