October 14, 1962 - December 02, 2020


Steven’s Live Streamed Memorial Service can be viewed below:

Steve Danielson was born October 14th, 1962 to Joyce and Robert Danielson, Moorhead, MN joining four brothers and sisters at home. When he was two his father passed away. His mother re-married and Steve had a wonderful step father, Martin Aaserud. Steve grew up attending Moorhead Public schools, then transferring to and graduating from Oak Grove High School. He gathered life long friends and memories along the way. He went on to attend college in Iowa, returning to Moorhead to complete his education and graduate from Concordia College. He pursued a successful career in computer programming.

Steve was baptized at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Moorhead on November 18th, 1962. He confirmed his faith on September 17th, 1978.

Steve was married to Christie Egeberg, and to this union his first son Brett was born. Although their marriage did not last forever as they had hoped, they remained committed partners in raising their son.

Steve met his wife Paula while working at MeritCare, where they both enjoyed the morning coffee club, lunch and afternoon Food n Fuel breaks with other friends and co workers. Their friendship grew into love, were joined in marriage in March 1996, and made their home in Moorhead. To this union his second son Christian was born.

Steve and Paula moved their family to rural Kindred, ND in January of 1997 where he embraced country life. He enjoyed gardening, mowing, and winning the battle over snow and spring floods.

Over the years Steve was a dedicated husband and father. He followed and supported the boys in their activities, especially enjoying the baseball years. He valued home time with his family enjoying campfires and smores, pulling sleds, carving pumpkins, foam dart wars, lighting fireworks, movies and popcorn, putting puzzles together, cooking, baking, playing with the dogs, napping with the cats, and walking with Paula on the quiet gravel roads.

During his life Steve touched many through his friendship and support. He was always willing to lend a hand, ear or shoulder. It was never too soon for him to think it was time to get the next Monopoly game going and start gathering the players together, it was always time well spent with friends. He was active in the church participating in ushering, serving communion, serving group, and Vacation Bible School. He participated in planning for the annual Kindred Booster Club Viking Pride Dinner and Auction, enjoying the work, the event, and above all how it helped promote and fund student activities in the Kindred School District. He was also an avid supporter of Kindred Youth Baseball.

Steve left the bonds of this earth on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020 at home with family at his side.

Steve is survived by his wife Paula; sons Brett (Maria) and Christian (Mackenzie); granddaughter Elise; brothers Randy (Linda), Buddy (Elizabeth); sisters Cheryl and Glenda; nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, step father Martin Aaserud, grandparents, brother Ricky, brothers in law Dale Frazier, Maurie Fobes, and Dennis Ziemer.

    My sincere sympathy to the entire Danielson family. When we were young kids, Danielsons lived right across the street from us on 14th Street North in Moorhead. Lots of memories of each of the Danielson children. This is my wish for Steven’s wife, children, and siblings–may your precious memories of Steven be a source of peace and comfort to your hearts.

    With deep sympathy and love,

    The Kindred Booster Club sends our sincere sympathy to the family of Steve. He was always an immense help during Viking Pride. He was willing to do anything needed and had a deep passion for philanthropy. He will be immensely missed. God bless his memory and all of his great works.

  3. Rex Dahl says:

    My sincerest condolences to Steve’s family. I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Steve and he was one of the kindest,most humble persons I’ve ever had the opportunity to meet. I was always so impressed on how he approached things with such a calm and level fortitude. I think it is something many of us strive to achieve to. It was truly a pleasure and honor that I got to work with him and get to know him more on a personal level over this last year. He will be missed terribly. My prayers and thoughts go to your family.

  4. Brad and Lisa Kellerman says:

    So sorry to hear of Steve’s passing.

  5. Kristen Hackmann says:

    A soft-spoken man. Kind. Selfless. Always willing to help. The best attitude. If he was ever irritated or upset, he didn’t display it. I learned much from Steve in the years we worked together at CoreLink. Though his time on earth was not nearly long enough, his spirit will live on in his family. Each of you were a blessing to him. I thank God for the blessing he is and was to so many.

  6. Henry Moen says:

    My heart goes out to the family, I was able to work with Steve and complete some side by side developer training while we were at Corelink together. I thought I was ‘easy going’ but I couldn’t hold a candle to Steve! He was professional in every sense of the word and I feel privileged to have known and worked with him. My thoughts and prayers-

  7. Bobbi Rudenko says:

    I worked with Steve for several years at CoreLink, and shared an affinity for 9 Dragons with him. He was truly one of a kind, and got me through some rough times professionally and personally, with his patience, cheerleading, and willingness to do whatever he could to make things easier for someone else. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a sincerely caring nature. I am so saddened by the news of his passing, and I wish peace and comfort to his family. He was one of the good ones for sure, and he will be greatly missed.

  8. Brian Borseth says:

    My deepest condolences to the Danielson family. We lived across the street as kids, my brother Randy was good friends with Steve back then, I remember them playing detectives with small suitcases they carried with their “secret plans”, I got to tag along sometimes, being younger I thought that was pretty cool. I haven’t seen Steve since I was a kid, I hope the memories of Steve can help you ease the pain of losing a loved one.

    Paula and family we are so sad to hear this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  10. Dusty and Laurie Mjoen says:

    Paula and family, Laurie and I are heartbroken for your loss. I have so many great memories of Steve, including the morning coffee club and our many enjoyable lunches with him and the rest of the group. You will be in our prayers.

  11. Emily (Jorgenson) Dhanani says:

    I was so sad to hear of Steve’s passing from my dad, Matt (Jorgenson). My dad and Steve were old friends, and I remember Steve fondly from being a youngster! I still laugh thinking of Brett bringing Steve my naked Barbie dolls for him to re-dress as a kid, and looking forward to going out to chop wood with Steve and my dad in the winter. I didn’t know Steve well as an adult, but his friendly smile will always be a happy memory from my childhood. I’m sending comfort to Paula, Brett, Christian and all Steve’s family and friends. May his memory be a blessing to you, especially in the days ahead.

  12. Carlotta and Terry says:

    Paula, My sympathy in the loss of Steve. My husband spent many hours at the Nettum farm as a child and could never remember your names. “The people on Nettum”s” He liked that you took good care of the farm. May your memories be sweet and comforting..

  13. Eric, Paula, Reid and Logan Myers says:

    Our sympathies are with all of you at this difficult time. We will keep your family in our prayers.

  14. Angela Christine McCarvel says:

    Paula, it feels like a lifetime since we have seen you, Steven and your sister at the Kindred Firemen’s feed. We enjoyed see you guys every year and catching up. Kevin, Jameson and I also looked forward to seeing you all there. We are thinking of you all during this time and as time goes on.

    With sympathy, Kevin, Angela and Jameson McCarvel

  15. Janice Simpson says:

    I grew up across the street from the Danielson family. That was many years ago, but I still have fond memories of Steve, and his siblings. My sympathy goes out to Steve and his family. It’s hard losing a loved one, whether they be a spouse, sibling, grandparent, father or mother, friend, etc. I pray that God will reach down with His loving hand, with comfort, love, and support in the days to come.

  16. Lisa Stuhaug says:

    I’m so sorry to hear that Steve is gone. Although we hadn’t seen each other in a long time, I think of him often. He was an integral part of my teen years and I am grateful to have had him in my life; I’m his quiet and thoughtful way he was always teaching lessons, showing extreme patience, and was overall a great role model. To his family, I pray you have peace and relish the memories of this wonderful man. God bless Steve, his memory and all of you as you travel on this journey.

  17. Scott Westall says:

    Steve was a great man and I had the tremendous privilege of being on his team while we worked our last 6 months of employment. He talked highly of his wife Paula and the trips he and Paula took to see their kids!!! He would talk in our team meetings about things maybe not going so well but always would describe it with a sense of humor – example remodeling of bathroom upstairs and water running down the wall and bats in the ceiling/roof🙂. Rest In Peace Steve🙏 and prayers for his wife and family🙏

  18. Marie Brauer says:

    My sympathies to the whole family. I know that Steve was very important to Martin and to all of our family. May God bless you and may you keep many wonderful memories in your hearts to share in the years to come. We loved Steve and will miss him dearly.

  19. Tammy Erickson says:

    I am saddened to read of Steve’s passing. We enjoyed our days of sitting together at baseball games when our boys were young and the fireman’s dinner more recently. We are holding you, Christian and Brett up in prayer.

  20. Ted Hoaby says:

    Wow… My heart goes out to your entire family. Steve was a great Meritcare teammate, an exceptional friend and of course, the ‘leader’ of the coffee club! My thoughts to you Paula and the rest of your wonderful family.

  21. Grace V. Aasen says:

    Deepest sympathies to Steve’s family and loved ones. He was unfailingly kind, cheerful, and loving and I have nothing but good memories of him. Steve was taken too soon but I’m so thankful he was my cousin and I was lucky enough to know and love him.

  22. Jodi Schwartz says:

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Prayers are with you.

  23. Debbie Schwartz says:

    Sorry for your loss

  24. Jeff Conant says:

    My deepest sympathies to the entire Danielson family. I was not around Steve very often, but when I was he was always kind, pleasant and just enjoyable to be around. Because I wasn’t around Steve very much I don’t know if he ever had a bad day but the powerful impression he left with me is he probably never did. That is a very unique and special gift. Steve touched many.

  25. Kathy Anderson says:

    Paula, Brett, Christian and the whole Danielson family – my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. To get such devastating news as a cancer diagnosis, is hard in any circumstance, but with someone so young and given such little time is unimaginable! I was part of Steve’s Corelink family. With his Corelink family, Steve was much like you described him, Brett, with his actual family. He was one of the first to come up with an idea for a fun activity or celebration, and also cared so deeply about the well being of his coworkers. When I joined his team, he was so patient, kind and always ready to share is immense knowledge. It felt like we’d been friends forever. He was a good listener, whether about a work problem or even a personal problem. Steve was so optimistic. I cannot imagine Steve ever saying a bad thing about anyone. Paula, I wish I had been able to meet you. Steve talked frequently about you. Brett and Christian, they way you honored your father was so beautiful. The eulogy and song at the end were amazing!

  26. Alane (Aasen) Smith says:

    I am deeply saddened by this too early loss of Steve and my heart goes out to Paula, Brett, Christian, Cheryl, Randy, Glenda, Buddy and their families! My four siblings and I became cousins to the Danielson kids, when my Uncle Martin married their mom. I remember meeting all the kids that summer, when our family was home on furlough from Ethiopia (1971). After we returned full-time to the States three years later, I wish we had gotten together more often with the Danielson kids. I guess we were too busy trying to map out our own teenage lives and assimilate back into the US. I am very grateful for the few times we were able to reconnect during these recent years! Steve touched me as one of those people who could get along with anyone. He had a beautiful sensitive, thoughtful soul — a true sweetheart of a person. My prayers are with each of you missing him, that with time your memories outshine your grief!!

  27. your brother buddy says:

    steve you were all family, i’m so happy you have been able to help our family become that much closer and be able to show our feelings

  28. Greg Hannestad says:

    Steve was a good friend from Oak Grove days….. Such a nice family …….. We enjoyed his mom and dad. This is such an unfortunate loss. We will pray for Paula and the boys. You too, Buddy.

  29. Colleen Phillip says:

    Paula, Bret and Christian, I just listened to the service, and I am just crying. I feel so bad for all of you. I just can’t believe you are young men now and you were not even kindergartners when I met you. If there is anything I can do please let me know. I didn’t know that he was sick until Curt asked me about it. I no longer work at FBS, same reason as your dad, but I can be reached at 701-799-5578 if you ever need anything. Paula please if you need a lunch date or anything please give me a call. Love you all Colleen

  30. Sara Rossow says:

    I remember Steve and Paula at a Firemen’s Dinner Benefit as one of the first memories I have of Kindred. So nice to visit with and always a hello when I would see them at other events. I am sorry for your loss.

  31. Lee says:
