Steven W. Hahn

September 8, 1951January 31, 2021

Steven W. Hahn, 69, of Elgin died on Sunday, January 31, 2021. He was born September 8, 1951 in Waukegan, IL to Fredrick W. and Helen G. (Ankele) Hahn. He is survived by siblings, John E. (Cathy) Hahn of Algonquin; Cynthia L. Hahn, of Colorado Springs, CO; and Fredrick W. (Deborah) Hahn of Springfield, IL; as well as aunts, several cousins, and many beloved nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Pamela S. Lohan; and brother, Thomas F. Hahn.

Steve was a master tool & die maker, plant manager, and mentor and friend to many at Schultes Precision Manufacturing for nearly 45 years. He loved motor sports, bowling, (referred to as “the secret weapon”, by his bowling team), and golf. Sunny days found him on one of his Harleys or one of his many Mustangs, road tripping with friends like Jeff and JD, Vito and Marybeth, with destinations as varied as Daytona, Elkhart Lake, Sturgis, or an NHRA drag race. As his mom aged, Steve stepped in and devoted much of his time to her, taking her out for meals, shopping, or sightseeing, as well as simply being with her.

No services are planned at this time. A gathering for family and friends will be announced at a later date.

Memorials may be made to the American Diabetes Association.

Oh the memories we have with Steve!!!! We traveled with him every weekend & vacationed every year for almost 20 years and a few of those included Cindy. Those vacations as we traipse around the states are the most memorable of times. The man with few words somehow managed to provide that deep belly laugh in only 2 short words. Maybe that was the gift from the Valedictorian from Arlington High School all those years ago, who knows, but he was our friend. Just one look in the rearview mirror he was always there, until father time took hold....miss you buddy! The sun & wind can now blow in your hair as you meander those country roads on that next wild adventure. Our deepest sympathy & caring thoughts wished for his family.

I would like to extend my condolences and deepest sympathy to all of Steve's family members. He was the first one to take me "under his wing" when I started working at Schultes on August 7, 1987. He was very helpful to me, and from that time on, we always had a good working relationship. Until he retired from SPM we always remembered each other on our birthdays since they were only 3 days apart (his being the 8th of September and mine the 11th of September) He attended my youngest daughter's wedding, and all through the years, always inquired about their welfare as they added four children to their family. I am sorry to hear about his death, but I have the comfort of knowing he is at peace. With Love & fond memories, Hilde
