Love and prayers to your wonderful family. I had the privilege of working with Steve’s mother, Margaret Smith. Her family was very near her heart. The movie tribute brought back many memories. God bless and comfort you.

Many of my fondest memories of Uncle Steve are from my childhood when my brother and I came from California to spend summers on the farm in Indiana. Like many have said, he was fun and had a great sense of humor. Even though he was older, he always had time for us. As I got older, I came to appreciate him on a different level. In a time where conversation almost seems like a lost art form, Uncle Steve was a great conversationalist who would truly listen and had thoughtful insights. I will miss him.

My Uncle Steve was one of the good guys, had a heart of gold. Like my sister said he was like a Big Brother to us. Great sense of humor and always ready to help and give comfort to his family and friends.

Steve was my brother-in-law and a fun guy with a multitude of interests. Two of my favorite memories include his visits when we lived in Colorado (he explored a big chunk of Colorado & Wyoming) and when we lived in southern California (he loved the sunshine). I'm so grateful I was able to talk to him on the phone just before he went in for surgery. He was so up-beat that he cheered Me up. A great guy that will be missed.

Even though we know Steve is in Jesus' arms, his physical death is such a shock and loss for me. I know you are missing him more than you can believe, but he is at peace. Please accept my condolences and know my prayers are going up to God for your entire family.

Steve was my uncle, but more like big brother. He let us follow him around while he was doing chores and when I had an interest in golf, he happily took me out to the course. And if you took him up on a dare, such as riding a carnival ride, that he truly DIDN'T want to ride, he did it anyway, because he was the one that made the dare. Keep cheering for your Cincinnati Reds💝

Diane and family..So sorry to hear that Steve passed away. He was such a great guy and such a hard worker when he worked for me at Bendix. He was always smiling and we had some good laughs at work. So sorry that we won't be able to make it to the viewing as we are now living in Hebron,Ky. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.
