Wesley Allen Steinbeck

Wesley Allen Steinbeck, 29, of New Carlisle, Indiana, passed away Sunday, July 3, 2022 at his home.


He was born December 21, 1992 in Merrillville, Indiana, the son of William D. Steinbeck II and Tina (Manns) Steinbeck. Wesley was baptized at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hammond.


A lifelong resident of the area, Wesley graduated from New Prairie High School.  He lived life to the fullest, always wanting to try new things. Wesley loved cars, and enjoyed working on them with his friends at Wallen Auto. He also enjoyed attending car shows and meets, driving his dad's '91 black Mustang. Wesley was an avid PC gamer and loved playing with his RC cars.  He was an outdoor person who took nature walks and escaped to the shooting range from time to time.  His latest adventure was snowmobiling and he had his own deluxe model.  He was an animal lover, especially family dogs and cats.  Wesley had an insatiable appetite for Chinese food and went weekly to the Chinese buffets with his best friend, Cody Thompson.  Wesley's family was very important to him, and he especially liked hanging out with his Godson, Justin Wallen, Jr.
