Steven Vincent Fiebig, better known to those close to him as Vince, 40, of Willoughby, formerly of Mentor and a long time resident of Kent, passed away peacefully on September 20, 2018 at his home after a 12 year battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his wife, sons, and loving family. There is no doubt that Steve and his brother Brian had front row seats on Thursday night to witness the Cleveland Browns win.

Steve and his twin brother Brian were born April 20, 1978 in Cleveland, Ohio to Tom and Virginia Fiebig. Steve was a 1996 graduate of Mentor High School where he lettered in football. After high school Steve went on to earn his Bachelors and Masters degrees from The University of Akron. He was a physical education teacher at OHDELA for the past 14 years where he touched the lives of thousands of children, as well as those he worked with.

Steve's sons, Cooper and Knox, were his pride and joy. He enjoyed spending time with them in any way, coaching them in sports and participating in their Boy Scout troop activities. Steve's bedtime routine always included telling his boys, "Always do your best."

Steve enjoyed a good beer, Mexican food, a great poker game, live music, and hanging with great friends and family. He was a lifelong Cleveland Indians and Browns fan. He also had a love of music, which brought him great comfort even in his final hours. Thankfully Steve had passion for cooking because the only thing Wendy loves in the kitchen is the coffee pot.

Steve is survived by his wife, Wendy Fiebig (Waller); sons, Cooper and Knox Fiebig; his parents, Tom and Virginia Fiebig; mother-in-law, Sandy Allen, in-laws, Dave (Sandy) Waller, Jeff (Cheryl) Hunt, sister-in-laws, Kristen (Kevin) Kalinowski and Kate Waller, and nephews Ky and Kade Kalinowski. Steve is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, other family members and amazing friends.

He was preceded in death by his identical twin brother, Brian Fiebig, and his grandparents, Tom and Marian Colicchio, Vince and Marge Fiebig, and Don and Barb Bentley.

The family will receive friends from 3-8 p.m. Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at the Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060. Funeral mass will be at 11:00 am Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at St. John Vianney Church, 7575 Bellflower Rd., Mentor, OH 44060. Interment will be at All Souls Cemetery, Chardon. A luncheon will be hosted at St. John Vianney following interment.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Marc Shapiro and the team at the Cleveland Clinic as well as Hospice of the Western Reserve for their amazing care and compassion.

Donations can also be made to the Willoughby Boy Scout Troop #185 and mailed directly to Grace Episcopal Church, 36200 Ridge Road, Willoughby, OH 44094.
