Steven S. “Steve” LaTour, age 51, of Appleton, passed away unexpectedly on September 29, 2021 as the result of an automobile accident. Steve was born October 3, 1969 in Green Bay, WI, son of Gene LaTour and Amy Jane (Schomburg) LaTour.
Steve graduated from Green Bay East High School in 1987. He studied at Marquette University immediately following high school and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College recently. He lived the majority of his life in Green Bay. In 2018, Steve moved to Appleton and married his soul mate and the love of his life, Brenda (Ebben) Kohl on September 28, 2019.
Steve was the ultimate “Family First” man! Brenda, his kids, and his family were his entire world. Everything he did and every decision he made with Brenda revolved around their family. He loved watching their kids play the sports they loved, watching football & baseball, attending concerts, cooking meals (sometimes 3 different dinners to satisfy everyone’s preferences), enjoying a Starbucks caramel macchiato with Brenda, watching movies, playing cribbage, and even a little fishing. Steve had a huge sweet tooth and loved anything made with sugar. Steve had a passion for music that showed through daily. He loved listening to music and spent several years playing guitar in a local band earlier in life.
Steve will be dearly missed by his loving wife Brenda LaTour of Appleton; parents Gene LaTour of Redding, CA and Amy Jane LaTour (Curtis Dik) of Gayville, SD; sons Aaron, Ryan, Jacob, and Nathan; daughter Madeline; step-daughters Jenna Kohl and Anna Kohl; brother Ron LaTour of Princeville, IL; sisters Amy LaTour (John Tober) of Las Cruces, NM and Tina LaTour of Green Bay; in-laws Gerry & Jeannie Ebben of Kaukauna; brother-in-law Steve Ebben of Combined Locks; sister-in law Lisa (Jeremy) Krueger of Neenah; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Preceding Steve in death are his paternal & maternal grandparents.

“I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you.
And then I realized, you spent the rest of your life with me.
I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away.
And will keep loving me…till the day we’re together again.”
You and me together we could do anything Baby.
I will continue to hold your hand and love you with all my heart Steve!
