Steve was an amazing person and friend. He was one of the most generous and kind people I have ever known. A true friend indeed.
My husband and I spent a lot of time taking road trips with his wife Beth and their fur babies. Over the years. One of the most memorable trips was a camping trip to the mountains...we had so much fun hiking and tent camping, I remember us all having a good laugh comparing notes on who snores the loudest and who was gonna wake up the camp ground in the middle of the night. Steve lost, my husband had him beat by a country mile. On our weekend getaways he was always the first up and usually had coffee and a good hearty breakfast ready for everyone else. He cooked the most amazing eggs I’ve ever had!

Steve enjoyed the simple things in life, spending time with his family and friends and his precious Cookie. His wife Beth was the love of his life and the grand babies were his world. He genuinely loved his job and was the best at it.
Steve’s hearty laughter was contagious and I will so miss hearing him have a giggle while saying “it’s five O’Clock somewhere” and “what’s up trouble?”. His friendship enriched my life and I will miss him terribly. He was strong in his faith and I know Heaven has a new angel. He was important, he was special and he will be missed.
My family and I extend our deepest sympathies and want the family to know that we love them, are here for them in any way they need us to be in the coming months and that they are all in our prayers.

Steve was like a brother to me! He taught me so much about the car business and finance. Of all the bosses that I’ve ever had, Steve was the best such a great soul. I was very blessed to have gotten to work with him. Not gone just moved to a better home.
