Steve was a Devoted Father and a Loving Son, Brother, and Uncle. Along with that he was a Beloved Friend and Family Member to all; we could always count on him to make us laugh. He was a down to Earth Country Boy who loved the simple life and enjoyed having fun with friends and family; especially around a campfire. He always gave more than he took and was always willing to help a person in need. He was a man who could not sit still and always had a project going. He was a hard worker who would do any job to take care of his Family. Steve loved fishing, camping, hunting, being outdoors and spending time with his family and friends.
