From our hearts to yours; while we grieve Steve’s passing, we can take comfort in knowing the world is a better place for his time here. His love for his family was always evident, and being part of his extended family offered us opportunities to witness and share in that love. Being central to many of our gatherings, he told great stories, he made us laugh, he fed us well. He was kind and generous, beloved by family and friends alike. Steve will surely be missed, but his enduring legacy will live on in all people whose hearts and lives he touched.
Our deepest condolences and best love,
Eloise, George, Brenda, Becky, and Holly
