Steven Henry Racz, age 91, formerly of Lytle Creek, California, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. He was born on December 24, 1929 in Hajduboszormeny, Hungary, the second son of Mihaly and Margit (Fodor) Racz.
Steven loved learning, reading, working with his hands and sharing stories. He earned a degree in Technology and Management from a university in Budapest, Hungary. Steven fled Hungary during a time of political turmoil and emigrated to the United States in January of 1956. Steven embraced living in the Chicagoland area, working and raising his three daughters.
Steven retired and moved to California in 1986, and spent many happy and healthy years in the Lytle Creek community. For over 20 years, he was active as the Director of the Lytle Creek Community Church and served on the boards for the Lytle Creek Homeowners Association and the Lytle Creek Land Exchange. Steven was the community “hardware store” and “good Samaritan”-- always willing to offer help, advice and service.
