Anita and sons, I am so sorry for your loss. Steve was such a special person, and will be greatly missed. I'm so glad that I got to know him. He shared his thoughts with me regarding how he dealt with negativity that happened in his life. I'm referring to the booklet he wrote. Steve had an amazing attitude about life, and that booklet was one of the most inspirational things I've ever read. Steve's in a good place now. It's comforting to know that he's with God, and isn't suffering any more.

It was fun to have Steve in the percussion section. He did such a good job. I think he enjoyed the craziness. One memory comes to mind. It was in Speedway for a festival. Another band was supposed to bring a gong (for the end of Bohemian Rhapsody). They forgot to bring it. By the time they finally brought it over we were ready to play, but they forgot the gong holder. I think it was Steve who recruited a random young boy to hold the gong up. It was getting heavier and heavier for him, but the kid managed to hold it up just in time for Steve to hit it at the very end of the song. Steve nailed it. It was perfect. It sounded so good that the rest of the band broke into a round of applause for Steve.

Band won't be the same without Steve. I'll always admire him, and I will never forget him. Rest in peace, Steve.

Stephen: to my cousin: we will miss you. You are no doubt looking down on us as we are sad. But I'm sure you are happy and not in pain. As cousins, we saw each other every two years growing up. You always figured out how to do things sooner, even though you were younger. I remember your mom talking about your accomplishments with such pride and love. You left a great legacy in your family and those you touched. We love you, Stephen.

Anita, Ben and Daniel: While we are so sorry to learn of Steve's homegoing, we rejoice in the fact that his terrible pain and suffering is over and he is now at Peace with the Lord. As we look around and see the beautiful fall colors, we can only imagine the beauty of what Steve is seeing right now in Heaven! Your husband and Dad has left a wonderful legacy and we would only hope for Ben and Dan that they would cherish that legacy and hold close and remember those things which their Dad has taught them. While we know you as well as many other's are going to miss him, you have so many great memories and the accomplishments he has had to think and dwell on in the days ahead. May you find the Peace and Comfort that we know that only the Lord can give. Remember, "one day at a time" and let the Lord direct your lives in the days ahead. Our love, prayers and support are with you.

He and his wife were always very kind to my family and me. Despite all that he and his family were going through they still showed care for us. I'm praying daily for the Wells family and will continue to do so. I'm so sorry.

When I think of Bro. Steve, my first thought is a selfless servant of God. He was always giving of his time to his family, friends, and church. He faithfully came up to speak with me and my family every service and took a special liking to our little boy Daniel. His musical ability was amazing, and I have so many fond memories of playing with him in musical groups. Steve will be greatly missed, but his memory will live on in our hearts and ministry at church. May God comfort each of the family and give great strength in the days to come. We love each one of you and are praying for you!

Jon, Michelle, and Daniel Whittaker
