I knew Steve through our monthly neighborhood "ROMEO"breakfasts. I will remember his great sense of humor and insight in helping solve all the world problems we discussed at our ROMEO meetings. Rest in peace Steve, we will miss you.

I remember Steve being full of great wisdom and wisecracks (both clever and corny!). He was quick to laugh and quicker to crack up those around him (while rolling our eyes of course). It's always sad to bid this final farewell, but my memories of Steve make me smile, and that may be the ultimate gift. My sincerest condolences to all of the family.

One thing we appreciated about Steve was his honesty. We only got to know him for a few years, but he was a wonderful neighbor. He was always willing to help others and we were blessed to get to interact with him.

Steve was loved by everyone, I never heard anyone say anything bad about him the whole time he was here. There just wasn’t anything but good in Steve, and he will be missed . We missed both Steve and Rose when they left Leadmine Lake . God speed and our hearts and thoughts are with you and the children .

We had so many fun evenings of card games! He freely shared his vast "how to" knowledge with us including supervising our landscaping lighting project. I will never forget the celebration dinner the night of Bill's retirement. "What does Google say?" (Our running joke line): Steve was one of a kind and we will never forget the special friendship we shared.

Steve was a great guy and neighbor! He was so knowledgeable about fixing houses and yards. So thankful for the many times he lent us a helping hand or advice on fixing something.
Our grandson Hayes enjoyed Mr. Steve's backyard and going for a walk with him.
And we loved the New Years Eve party we had at his house. He and Rose was a glue for our neighborhood.
Hard to believe he is not here with us. We will miss him.
Our love to Rose and their kids.

Steve was a friendly person ,always said hello when he passed by wearing his straw hat.
He helped me one time cleaning up the yard , no one asked him , he just did it -Thats the type of person he was and I will remember him for that kindness.
May he rest in peace !
