We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Kruger Funeral Home
Steve “Cowboy” Summers, 62 of Danville, joined his loved ones in Heaven on Saturday, May 21, 2022. Visitation will be from 11-1pm on Thursday, May 26 at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. Services will follow at 1pm with Pastor Jay Sorrell officiating.
Cowboy was born on September 10, 1959, the baby of six, to Delmar and Roberta (Carlock) Summers. He attended Danville schools, excelling in wrestling, baseball and football, before graduating from DHS in 1978. He enlisted in the US Marine Corp shortly after and served during peacetime. Following his return from the service, Steve went to work for C&EI Railroad for ten years, and later as a Correctional Officer at Riverbend Maximum Security Prison with the K9 Unit. His health forced him to stop working in the mid-nineties.
Cowboy loved riding motorcycles and tried to make every fundraising ride that he could. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys Fan and NASCAR fan. When his children were younger they shared the love of hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors. He shared his love of shooting with his two older boys and taught them all he knew.
Cowboy reunited with his middle school sweetheart Jodie Anderegg in 2010, the two married, and she survives. He leaves behind his children: Magnum (Stephanie) Summers, Colt (Cindy) Summers, Cheyenne Summers, Misty Gouard, and Ashley (Steven) Gnaden; grandchildren: Alissa Summers, Lucas Summers, Riley Summers, Heavenly Summers, Adrian Cons, Sydney Gouard, Soriah Gouard, Brian James Lynch, Dallas Lynch, and Rickie Clark. His siblings: Irvin (Diana) Summers, Becky (Jewell) Lucas, and Wayne Fritz; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins will also miss him greatly. Cowboy was preceded in death by his parents, a son Dallas Summers, a brother Dave Fritz, a sister Myra Myers, and three nieces: Felicia Chunges, Abbie Brandenburg, and Carrie Johnson.
