Steve, we got to know your mom and dad through you and Nate. We saw your dad this past August and really enjoyed talking with him. Your dad was a wonderful, kind man. May you feel the peace and live of Jesus during this time.

A cherished classmate and friend...we called him Lee when he went to Bush High School. We enjoyed him and Bonnie coming to our class reunions and later Lee coming for our class luncheons. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Steve.

Dear Steve, Your dad was a amazing man, full of integrity and character. We were so blessed to have him literally be a part of our family as well as your Mom and you. Your father and my father's dedication to The University of Kentucky was like no other and no pride could ever match his love for you! You became a Wildcat! His greatest wish - you were his greatest love and pride. You have his strength and your Mom's heart.... Please accept our deepest condolences to you and your family.
