Most of his career was with International General Electric doing design and construction of power plants in countries all across the globe.


Bob and Grace retired to Sanford North Carolina in 1991, and moved to Twin Lakes Community in Burlington North Carolina in 2008, where they recently celebrated 61 years of marriage. Bob’s wife Grace is still at Twin Lakes. His son Dr. Robert Steer lives in Bernardsville NJ, son Peter Steer lives in Norwalk CT, and the family of his son Thomas J. Steer lives in Encinitas CA. Bob and Grace’s three sons have brought 8 grandchildren into the family.


We all miss him and hold cherished memories about how wonderful our Granddad, Father and Husband, and friend Robert L Steer was to all of us. Rather than a formal service, we invite you to think kindly of Bob when you recall your memories of time with him.
