Dr. Steve Stropes was born in 1964 in Franklin,IN. At an early age he knew that he would ultimately become a doctor of some kind. After much soul-searching, a decision was made to attend Purdue University in a pre-professional track. All of the biology, physiology, etc. came easily and he was accepted into the veterinary school at Purdue in 1985, graduating with a DVM degree in 1989. The Stropes family had always used Franklin Animal Clinic for their veterinary care; therefore, it was natural that DR. Stropes ended up working at FAC. Dr. Stropes enjoys all aspects of general practice, especially of the people he gets to meet.
Currently, Dr. Stropes resides in Trafalger with his family on a farm. His wife of 30 years, Kelli, has given them 3 awesome children whom now range between 21 and 30 years old. Outside of the office, Dr. Stropes manages the cows, sheep, chickens, dog and cats that reside on the farm. He enjoys any outside activity, especially hiking, fishing, and variety of shooting sports. Recently, Dr. Stropes has caught the travel bug and has enjoyed traveling more with his wife.
