Steven E. Fromm

June 13, 2023, 71, Goldsboro –

Steven E. Fromm, 71, fought the good fight and finished his course here on earth on Tuesday, June 13, 2023. Steven was born in Columbus, Ohio to the late William and Ethel Miller Fromm on October 7, 1951. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, George Fromm.

Steven considered the defining moments of his professional life to be those spent in the United States Air Force, where he retired after 21 years of service.

After leaving the Air Force, Steven spent the rest of his professional life as a flight simulator instructor for various Air Force affiliates. He retired in 2017 after many years of dedicated service.

Steven was a true Buckeye sports fan and enjoyed pulling for his favorite team, The Ohio State University.
