I only knew Steve for a short time while I worked at the Food Factory. I would see him every morning at 9:30 and knew he would be ordering the Southwestern Omlet and we would talk Nascar the whole time. He was one of the kindest men I've known and he will be missed. My prayers to the whole Husketh family.

I was shocked to hear about Steve. Our families go way back starting with my Dad and Odell (Steve's Dad). Linda, I can still remember our camp outs in the tree house and our walking the streets of Cary, when it was safe. Myrna, you were his life and he adored you and his children and grandchildren. Whenever I saw him we always had a good laugh. He will be missed like a brother! God bless you and your family, and remember we will meet again...
Love to you all!
