Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Steven L. “Steve” Osborn, age 71, of Dimondale, passed away peacefully on December 8th, 2022 with family at his side. Steve was born July 4th, 1951 and lived most of his life in Dimondale, Michigan on the farm. He graduated from Holt High School and then served four years in the United States Navy. Upon returning home, he worked for the State of Michigan as a maintenance mechanic for 25 years.

If you knew him, you always knew where you stood. If you didn’t, it wasn’t because he didn’t tell you. Had swearing and making inappropriate comments been Olympic events, he would have certainly brought home the gold. Steve enjoyed the outdoors, loving the thrill of reeling in a big fish or getting a good buck in his sights. While he loved being outdoors, he loved the razzing that happened with his hunting and fishing partners the most. He was also an avid reader of westerns and enjoyed a lively game of cribbage.

Steve is survived by his sons, Chad (Brittany) Osborn and Nathan Osborn; his grandchildren Matthew, Xavier, and Knox; his siblings Sherry (Chuck) Henderson and Eric (Kim) Osborn; his “Ma” Joyce Osborn; extended family; and his “girls” at Country Acres who took care of him right up to the end. Steve was preceded in death by his dad, Lee Osborn; his brothers Kirk and Mark Osborn; and his beloved friend and companion Annie.

Per his wishes there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Stiff Person Syndrome Research foundation at

    Met Steve when my husband was at Country Acres. He was always reading and I like to read so I struck up a conversation. He was able to make inappropriate comments and I learned to just laugh and let them go. He and another resident named Carol were diabetics. I used to bring things they could eat. I made grape salad with splenda. I brought my husband his favorite ice cream and brought ice cream that Steve and Carol could have. I just learned of his passing. He was a character but I felt he was a good hearted person. Just a bit rough around the edges. Carol just passed this month and her daughter told me she took the loss of Steve pretty hard. That is how I learned he passed. I enjoyed getting to know them while my husband was there. He passed January of 2022. I missed the visits but it was too long a drive to keep those up. I did keep them in heart and memory though.
