Steve always had a smile and was the kindest soul. His whole world was his daughter and his grandchildren. They are lucky to have such a close special bond. He always was willing to give help when needed. He will be missed by many. We'll hold that smile in our hearts until we see you again.

Steve always seemed to be more concerned with others well being even when dealing with health issues of his own. I carry fond memories of skiing, fishing the beaver ponds and exploring the mountains around Breckenridge on the "Tote-Gote". Steve was a kind, caring brother and will be sorely missed.

Steve had the best smile and I remember his quiet sense of humor that could catch you off guard. Steve always thought of other people before himself and would do anything for his family.

Steve was such a dear, kind person. His soft heart and sweet sense of humor are things that were so special about him. He always enjoyed a project, and some of my best memories are when Steve would help me fix my car or do jobs around my house. We spent lots of time laughing (and sweating) one summer when he helped me re-roof my house in Englewood!

Steve cared so much about other people, and that is one of the things I loved the most about him. He always had a kind word or some encouragement. He was a wonderful big brother.

Steve was a soft spoken, gentle man. I will remember all the times he helped his Dad build and fix things. They had fun and were always making something that was of high quality. He could be funny playing in the Colby kazoo group and he could be serious helping build the deck cover on the back of our house.

He loved his daughter with all his heart and adored his grandkids, Breanna and Brody. He wanted the best for all of them. I will miss you, Steve.

You meet very few people in life that you can describe as genuinely wonderful, and that is exactly how we describe Steve. He is one of a kind, and we are blessed to know him. His love for Andrea, Breanna, and Brody was visible in every conversation, and action. There is absolutely no question that they are his pride and joy.

Steve's kindness, patience, and love are nothing short of remarkable and we will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Steve, we will carry your memory with us in our actions. Your characteristics of a father, and grandfather are exemplary and we can all learn a little something from you.

Love,
Mike and Kelli
