Stephan Wayne Koble


Stephan Wayne Koble, 56, of Carmel, Indiana, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, with his loving family at his side after a courageous 10-month battle with cancer.
He was born Nov. 3, 1962, in Goshen, Indiana to Carroll L. and Carol F. (Frederick) Koble. His father preceded him in death.
Steve graduated from Wawasee High School in 1981 and Purdue University in 1985 with a bachelor of science degree in building construction technology. He was a lifelong Boilermaker fan and a member of Farm House Fraternity during his time at Purdue.
Steve worked for Brooks Construction of Fort Wayne for 28 years, with 15 of those serving as vice president of operations. During this time, Steve held the position of API (Asphalt Pavement Association) president from 2002-2003. He then helped his wife establish and grow her new food truck business in Fort Wayne called 'Who Cut the Cheese??' Most recently, he was the asphalt operations manager with Calumet Civil Contractors in Whitestown, Indiana.
In addition to Steve's dedicated professional career, Steve was also a follower of Jesus Christ. He also had many hobbies outside of work that brought joy to his life. Steve's passion for sports ranged from attending Purdue sporting events to his love for the sport of golf. Any given weekend you could find Steve out on the course.
Survivors include his loving and devoted wife, Lori L. (Collier) Koble of Carmel; mother, Carol Koble of Syracuse; children, Ross Koble of Indianapolis, Lauren Koble of Fort Wayne, Max Collier of Cincinnati, and Kaley Collier of Indianapolis; and brothers, Mark Koble (RaDonna) of Eugene, Oregon and Craig Koble (Sharon) of Goshen, Indiana.

I was one of Steve's Farm House brothers and a member of his pledge class. I have many fond memories of Steve at Purdue. WIth his energetic and fun-loving personality, he was a great brother and I knew he would do well in life. Like so many, I was greatly saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends and trust that the Lord will give you additional strength during this time of great loss.
