Steven Leroy Propes, age 49, of Casper, passed away surrounded by his family and friends on June 25, 2017 at Central Wyoming Hospice. Steve was born May 9, 1968 in Sullivan County Indiana to Ray and Judith Propes. Steve's father, Ray moved the family to Wyoming when Steve was a baby. Steve grew up in typical Wyoming style with a love for hunting, fishing and outdoorsmanship. He graduated from Kelly Walsh High School in 1986, where he was active in the wrestling and boxing programs. From there he married his high school sweet heart Rhonda, and he had his first three children Chris, Cherise and Kelan. It wasn't until later in life when he met Suzy and expanded his legacy with two more children Tyler and Evan. He had a love and passion for coaching kids in wrestling and football. He also had a love for walleye fishing and attempting to hunt elk. Steven loved music and making up his own lyrics to the songs(not always PG rated). Steve lived a happy life surrounded by his loved ones and will be greatly missed.
Steve was preceded in death by his mother Judith Propes, his brother Tony Propes and his nephew Ethan DeSchneau.
He is survived by his father, Ray Propes Sr., spouse Suzy Fraser, sons, Christopher, Kelan, Tyler, Evan Propes, daughter, Cherise Propes, siblings, Ray "Butch" Propes, Jr., Laura Bohnet, Diana DeSchneau, Gordon Propes, Ruth Ann Casey, grandchildren Colton Shippen, Joslynn Propes, Chloe Propes, Haiden Propes, Deacon Slensker, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
