Brewers Mourn Loss of Steve Uecker
Although the Brewers lost the game today, it means nothing compared to losing a family member. When a member of the Brewers family loses a member of its own family, we all suffer the loss. Please keep the family of Bob Uecker in your thoughts and prayers tonight.
This release was just issued by the Milwaukee Brewers…
Steve Uecker, son of Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker, passed away today at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, from complications related to an illness known as San Joaquin Valley Fever. He was 52.
“This is a very difficult time for all of my family as we mourn the loss of my son Steve,” Bob Uecker said. “We appreciate the support of everyone connected to the Brewers: the players and coaches, the front office, and the fans. I also want to thank all of the doctors and staff at Froedtert Hospital for their efforts and care throughout this process.”
In addition to his father, Steve is survived by his mother Joyce, brother Bob Jr., sisters Sue and Leann, and several nieces.
“Bob is a great friend, and on behalf of everyone at the Brewers, Debbie and I want to extend our deepest sympathies to him and his family on the passing of his son Steve,” said Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio. “His loss is our loss, and we share his sadness today.”
A private memorial service will be held.
Bob and his family will be in all of our thoughts and prayers over the upcoming days.
