Stephan Wayne Koble, 56, of Carmel, Indiana passed away on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 with his loving family at his side after a courageous ten-month battle with cancer.  He was born on November 3, 1962 in Goshen, Indiana to Carroll L. and Carol F.

Steve graduated from Wawasee High School in 1981 and Purdue University in 1985 with a B.S. 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.
