Steve, son of Paul and Kathy (Ruis) Moos, was born on May 17, 1972 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He graduated from Rock Valley Christian Elementary School and Western Christian High School. Following graduation, he worked a variety of jobs including telemarketing, ACE Roto-Mold, and Diamond Vogel Paint road striping. For the last several years he was battling severe diabetes and its many complications.


 Those who knew him well understood his strong-willed stubbornness as well as his deeply generous heart. He gave away so many of his possessions because he felt someone needed them more than he did or for the simple joy of giving. So, it is fitting that when he passed, he was able to donate his liver and eyes.  He’d gladly give those organs because someone needed them, and he no longer did. Steve enjoyed collecting Star Wars Memorabilia, license plates, and other unusual things. Steve loved animals of all kinds especially his cat, Tac-Tac.


Steve is survived  by his parents, Paul and Kathy Moos of Rock Valley, IA;  Sons, Alex Dykstra of Primghar, IA, and Hunter Moos of Sutherland, IA; sister, Andrea (Brian) Koelewyn and their children, Sylvia, Aliya, Jonah, Adalyn, and Sadie of Rock Valley, IA; “brother” Tanny Nguyen of Garden Grove, CA. As an adult Steve came to know his biological mom Jeanne Day, brother Korban Day, sister Emily Moldren, all of Indiana. He is also survived by his Grandma, Sylvia Ruis of Milaca, MN; uncles, aunts, cousins, and medical personnel especially nurses at the dialysis center, Sioux Falls, SD; and Care Giver, Norma. He also leaves behind many dear and loyal friends.


He was preceded in death by his Grandpa John Ruis; Grandparents Art and Mary Moos; and Uncle Alan Ruis.
