I first met Steve when we moved to Union and I got a job at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Steve and I became friends and were up until his death. We may not have corresponded a lot but we both knew we would be friends for life. Eternal rest grant unto Stephen Faulkner, O Lord. Until we meet again sleep sweet Steve.

I first met Steve and Vicki at Kountry Kampgrounds in Meigs County, Southern Ohio. Steve was a likable guy, easy to talk with and seldom not joking or laughing about something. He was a great neighbor, I always looked forward to seeing both of them on my trips camping. Steve was the kind of neighbor that you always wish for, helping hand, wisdom, easy going, up beat, enjoyable to talk with, it seemed that he and I had some shared life experiences that made the conversations enjoyable and soul searching at times.
Miss those sit downs with Steve, Vicki and the Generals.
RIP Steve.

I met Steve when he was a police officer at Sinclair building 9. When I was in between my law enforcement classes we would chat. He was a really nice guy. I pray the Lord gives Steve's family and friends peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Steve was a strong willed person who had a desire to live. He loved to fish, the ice cream truck and golf cart rides here at the campground. We can't forget his 4 little dogs (all named after generals). He was a good man and will be terribly missed by those who new him. Rest in peace my friend.

Stephen was older than me, I graduated in 79. His battle is over and no more suffering. My prayers are with the family for comfort and guidance.
