Steven E. Claycamp was born May 18, 1954, in Belleville, Kansas to Everett and Marlene (Lautenschlager) Claycamp. He departed this life on January 22, 2022, at CHI St. Elizabeth Health Care in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Steve grew up all over Kansas, in 1964 the family moved to Edgar, NE and their roots were planted. He attended the Edgar School and at the age of 16 he had decided he had learned all he could from books and went out to experience and learn from life firsthand. He traveled to New Orleans, Ohio, Florida, Nashville, and various other places. He returned to the central part of the country and traveled with a company that painted schools, hotels, auditoriums, even a fire station down in Manhattan, KS. Steve farmed for local farmers, driving truck over the years; as well, hauling groceries, grain, etc. He had been employed with Deweese Sand and Gravel for the last 20 plus years.
In 1978 Steve married Gaila Skinner and to the union two sons were born: Allen and Adam.
Steve was a jack of all trades and always a jokester. He was always doing something. He enjoyed putting things together, cutting a load of wood with his sons, fishing, camping, boating, playing the guitar and singing, having a few cows down at “the lot”, gardening, and mowing, but he was especially good at helping out others. When there was someone in need, he helped do whatever he could. Steve loved his family and friends and spending time with them.
He is preceded in death by his father Everett, two brothers-in-law Curt Johnson and John Sanders, his grandparents, aunts and uncles.
