Just wanted to say that you never saw Steve without a smile on his face. No matter the job, he was always willing to help. He always talked about the loves of his life, Diann and Nick. He is going to be missed by so many people. Betty Messel

I also know Steve and Diann from working at the hospital. They both always had a smile on their face. Wonderful couple. They both know God and that makes a difference. That is what gets you through.
I couldn't make the viewing and I apologize for that but hope to see you in Walmart soon so I can give you a hug and more words of encouragement.
Steve's journey on earth has ended and look at all the people he has touched. Praying for strength and comfort for your family in this hard time.
God Bless you Diann and Nick

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with him at the hospital. Steve was always a polite, soft spoken man who just always pushed ahead and did a great job. I will be keeping you in my thoughts as you say goodbye to Steve.

Diann & Nick

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Steve & you, Diann @ the hospital. I loved meeting him in the hallway. He always had a smile & nodded his head. He was the sweetest person to all of us when we needed his help. I can only imagine the loss of a husband. Nick I have lost my father. You will always remember all the memories you made with a smile. Something you both hear will trigger a memory. You both will be in my thoughts & prayers in the coming days & I will be praying for strength & comfort. You both can be comforted by knowing that one day we will see Steve again. I am so sorry I could not be there tonight or tomorrow. Hugs to you both, God bless you both . Love you Diann.

Steven was always so quiet. Comes from being the youngest of 4 boys I’m sure. Since Nellie & I had 8 kids between us our favorite place to go was the park. Steve’s kind gentle personality was easy to love.
