In his spare time Steve enjoyed off-roading and motorcycles.
At the heart of Steve’s life was his family. He sought tirelessly to support and show his love to his family.

He is also remembered by his mother Ann Barlow, who has passed. A celebration of Steve Barlow’s life will be held in the spring. In remembrance of Steve’s large, loving heart, and in lieu of a memorial, share with Deb the kind gesture you have offered to others.
