Steven "Papa" Dotzert, 62, of Peoria, passed away Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at OSF St. Franics Medical Center in Peoria.

He was born November 10, 1957 in Peoria to Albert and Joann (Burdett) Dotzert. He married Cindy Danley on October 8, 1976 in Canton. She survives.

Also surviving are their two children, Daniel (Lisa) Dotzert of Hanna City and Julie (Joe Gosnell) Dotzert of Bartonville; seven grandchildren, Breanna, Angelina, Joshua, Ethan, Reagan, Bella, and Brayden; one great-grandson, C.J.; three sisters, Sharon Morgan of Rockford, Carol Cordrey and Janice Dotzert both of Austin, TX; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Ronald Dotzert.

Steven worked as a Butcher for Raber Packing CO for 12 years and then worked as an Assembler for Komatsu America Corp. for over 29 years. He was a member of the Boilermakers Local 158 and President of the Pottstown Cemetery Association.

He enjoyed hunting, mushroom hunting, watching the Dallas Cowboys and old westerns on tv. Steven was a caring man that always put his family first and his grandchildren and great-grandson meant the world to him. He will be remembered as quiet man of few words but was always willing to listen to others. He will be missed immensely by all who had the privilege to know him.
