ADD A MEMORY
Robin Jones

June 9, 2019

Steve was the oldest and I was the youngest. He took care of me. Two of my best memories of Steve is when he would get excited about watching a ball game or NASCAR and his knee would start bouncing, he start rubbing his hands together the whole couch would shake. The other thing is helping him detail his yellow GTO.
I miss you big brother,
Love you for ever.

On behalf of Mom and Dad, ( Phyllis and James Morgan) and our families I would like to extend condolences. Dad had surgery recently and is unable to get out at the present time. He asked that I reach out and let you all know that he would like to have attended the service. I will be working in California otherwise I would have attended on his behalf.
I can say that as a child I remember Steve's energy and pleasant demeanor towards me and my family. Margaret and Wade were proud of him and his accomplishments. What a great career he had at Marsh, not many folks can say they enjoyed such a long career. Steve was certainly loved and will be missed by all his family, many good memories for you all to treasure.

All the best and many prayers to you all.
