Steven Michael DauenhauerSteven Michael Dauenhauer

Steven was born April 1, 1966, in Vallejo, CA and moved to Springtown in 1968. Steven grew up in Springtown where, after graduation, he began his career in construction contracting. With a work ethic that would and does continue to inspire those around him, Steven built a very successful contracting and construction company. His work is not only evident in and around Springtown but across Texas as well as neighboring states.

As much as he was a successful businessman, his true success was in who he was as a person. Steven left behind a legacy of kindness, honor, integrity and love. He let his love of the Lord and his Christian faith guide his life. He gave back to his community through his work at his church, local schools and civic organizations. As a volunteer coach and youth leader at his church, he was a role model and mentor. His impact was especially felt by the community's youth since he was always willing to go above and beyond if he thought it would benefit the kids. This role model and mentor influence also had a deep effect on the adults around him. He was a leader of men and inspired those around him to do their best.
