I didn’t know Steve that well, but I’ll never forget his bright and shining smile. Always polite and mannerable. There’s a shining star in heaven that will forever remind us of Steve and his gentle, loving spirit .

I’m still in shock my bruh Steve is gone but I have over 20 plus years of memories. We went to the same Elementary, middle and high school together. From telling people when we were younger we were related. To playing basketball, to getting in trouble in class for laughing and making beats on the table and rapping! Lol To one of the last times I saw him and his son at the good in the hood festival. Rest easy my Guy! I send my love to the family. We love y’all!

Everytime Steve came over to my place he always asked is it cool? My husband & I always said Of course Steve! Then sometimes I would tell Steve that will be 20 push ups. We would laugh out loud & just chill & kick it. The stories he would tell would have us laughing so hard. Steve always had a HUGE! smile on his face & always talking about his kids & what he was about to cook. The last thing I remember him cooking was enchiladas & I sent him a message saying it looked good & that I wanted a plate. He said come through. If I knew that was the last time I would hear from him I would've pulled up on him to get my plate. I would want him here instead of the plate of food any day. Rest In Love & Peace Steve, you will be dearly missed.
Love & Respect ~Jameelah Rasheed~

With love and joy I will remember a young boy with a killer smile coming to greet me always. Then at his sister Vasheeta's wedding, I seen that same smile on the man he grew into with his son by his side stating..." Lil' man this is Miss Laurie a very special lady". Then standing by his daddies side he put out his hand and said I'm Steve Jr. nice to meet you. I looked up at the boy turned man and told him ..."you are doing a fine job....buddy😊". RIP IN PEACE Steve I will hold you close to my heart always.🙏❤
