Life Story / Obituary


Stephen James Mauger, 55, of Holland, Michigan, passed away on April 28th of 2024 in his home.

Steve was born in Decatur, Illinois to Jane Penelope Bostrom and Theodore Fitch Mauger on February 21st of 1969. He went on to earn an M.D. in Internal Medicine from the University of Michigan in 1996. He began his career serving as a Captain in the United States Air Force. He was a hardworking physician for twenty-seven years. For the past fourteen years, he practiced medicine at Holland Hospital and contributed to multiple roles. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his family and doing anything he could to enrich their lives.

He is preceded in death by his brother, Daniel Mauger, and father-in-law, Richard Zylstra.

A private service will be held at a later date for family and close friends to honor Steve's life.

Steve was a devout Christian who valued family, faith, and hard work. He cared deeply for his patients and those close to him. His quick-witted humor kept the room he was in light and happy while also capable of speaking deep words full of grace and hope. His departure is felt gravely by his entire family and countless others he touched in his community. We will cherish these memories of Steve in our hearts forever. We love you, Steve.
