Mr. Steinour was born February 7, 1938 in Gettysburg, PA the son of the late Morris and Winona Smith Steinour. He is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Jean Mumper Steinour.
Rodney was a 1956 graduate of Gettysburg High School. Following high school he was employed by Gettysburg National Bank for the next 35 years until his retirement. He was a member of the Gettysburg Moose, member and past president of the Gettysburg Jaycee’s.
