Dunnegan, Steven Lynn “Duffy”

Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother of Church, January 9, 2021.  Beloved son of the late Clara M. (Valleroy) and the late James E. Dunnegan. Brother of James Barry, Jeannine (Greg) Larm, uncle to James Ryan, brother-in-law to Debbie.

Steve was a proud graduate of Lindbergh High School and Central Methodist College, playing soccer for both. He received his Masters in Educational Television from the University of Missouri Columbia. Steve worked in Television, Technology, and Videography for the University of Missouri Columbia and Saint Louis Public Schools. He was also a videographer for the St. Louis Football Cardinals. He had many fun stories about working and traveling with the team, and trying to film while perched on stadium rooftops.

Steve was an avid golfer, fly fisherman, and bird hunter. He was happiest being outdoors doing the things he loved with family and friends. English Pointers Jack III and Jed, and Labrador Buck, were his loyal companions. Miss Kitty claimed him as her own.

He was a lifelong St. Louis Baseball Cardinals fan, attending World Series games in every series they played in since his birth. He interned in videography for a few years with the team. Steve loved England and Britain, especially their comedy and golf courses; good theatre; and Christmas. Steve could pick the perfect bottle of wine for any occasion. His favorite thing was being at Whippoorwill Valley among the trees, fields, and horses. Blessed with an Irish sense of humor, Steve was a friend to many, a stranger to none.

Special thanks to his core groups of friends who helped him remain active these last several years doing the things he loved.

Please raise a glass and toast Steve as he has met up with mom and dad on the back nine. In lieu  of flowers, memorial contributions to Missouri Conservation Department or Ducks Unlimited Columbia, MO appreciated.   Due to Covid-19, a Celebration of Steve’s Life will be held at a later date. A KUTIS SOUTH COUNTY service.
