He loved his family and his friends, playing basketball, making jokes, listening to classic rock and watching movies. And he loved Joliet Catholic Academy.

A memorial golf outing in honor of Glenn E. Steed Jr. will be held Saturday, Aug. 4, at Nettle Creek Country Club in Morris. Sign-in is at 11 a.m. and the shotgun start for tee-off will commence at noon. A dinner reception will follow at The Red Cent at 6 p.m.

Cost for golf, cart, beverages on the course and dinner is $100. Dinner only is $25. RSVP by July 21 to Jennifer Allen at 815-467-7185 or Make checks payable to the Glenn E. Steed Jr. Memorial Fund.

A scholarship has been established in Steed’s name at Joliet Catholic Academy.

Steed graduated from Joliet Catholic High School in 1984. An avid basketball player, he earned a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois-Chicago and was employed as a design engineer for Hendrickson International in Woodridge for 14 years.

After marrying Susan Strysik in 2006, they were expecting their first child, and Olivia Glenn Steed arrived seven weeks after the death of her father. Steed, who ran several marathons, spent his spare time volunteering at homeless shelters and always thought of his alma mater.
