Steven Paul Bird, 60, died Sunday, June 9, 2019 at his home in Muscoda. Steve was born in Richland Center, WI to Paul and Caryl (Manning) Bird. He lived for most of his life in Muscoda with his wife Sherri and family.

He worked for a short time in Dallas, Texas in the same position before returning to Wisconsin with his wife to be closer to family, and they built their home beside the Wisconsin River.
