Dick was a father who was an inspiration to his son Eric Steele (wife Danielle Steele), his grandchildren (Trenton, Zachary and Jaiden) and his great grandchildren (Sklar and Ares.) He is survived by his sister Deborah Green (husband Billy Green), and his brother James Steele plus his nieces and nephews Jeff Green, Deanna Green-Patrick, Steven Steele and Laura Begley.
Dick actually had a life before making his home in his favorite place, Puerto Penasco. He grew up in Lebanon, Missouri before he was drafted in 1966 and served as an MP at Fort Hood, Texas. He retired from the Department of Energy before becoming our unofficial American Mayor of Peñasco
