Memories Timeline


  1. Steve was a wonderful,compassionate, kind caring person . He was a great father to his boys , and friend to those who knew him. He will be truly missed by many . He had an infectious laugh and big heart . Rest In Peace.

  2. Our family is praying for all of Steve’s family and friends during this challenging time.

  3. In 10th grade I had a crush on Steve. He was the cool drummer and I was too shy to even really talk to him. In March I started chatting with a guy on a dating site and he ended up giving me his cell number at the end of the evening. I googled the number and low and behold it was Steve! We started dating and hit it off. He was so thoughtful, sweet and had such a strong belief in God. Our story ended before it really had a chance to start but I am thankful for the times we had together. You made it to the top of the tree Handsome Frog, you marched a good march Handsome Solider and I know you are singing with the angels Handsome Steve. Till we meet again ??

  4. You can’t imagine the blessing that Steve has been to me since we met on our first day at work (When we met). The stories are many but the most important is at a time in my life when I could no longer go to work because of a motorcycle accident. Being at a low point in my life, Steve, through phone conversation, texting, and prayer Steve knew how to help Nurse be back to joy in and through our Lord Jesus Christ. My heart aches with the news of him leaving us but also is a joy because I know he Knew our Lord then and is with him now. God bless him, And the family.

  5. I met steve years ago when we both started at GM. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to the family. Steve was a great friend and one of the nicest guys ive ever met. Rest in peace steve you will be truly missed.

  6. Steve, my earliest memory of you was being chased around while you pretended to eat me and the other kids with a mattress. That is about the only thing I remember from that trip! You made me laugh so hard as a little kid, and the times we were able to hang out as an adult make me smile through tears, thankful for a riverboat ride in Chicago, thankful to have been able to dance with you at my wedding… you brought the sunshine with you, and this world is so messed up to have taken you so soon. I hope you are dancing and laughing in heaven, see you soon.

  7. Steve, you put up a good fight but I guess God wanted you to come home. It was a pleasure knowing you. Enjoyed the times we car pooled to Flint. You were one of a very few people who kept in touch after I retired. Thanks for being my friend. To your family especially your sons I send my deepest sympathies. Remember the good times. Your dad will always be with you in your heart. May your faith in God give you peace. Marlene

  8. Our thoughts and prayers for Steve and his family.

    Eternal rest grant unto him,
    O Lord, and let perpetual light
    shine upon him.

    May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  16. I did not know your loved one, but I am so sorry for your loss. The majority of us are not strangers to loss. Many who have experienced loss find these practical suggestions helpful. Allow yourself time to grieve, talk about your thoughts and feelings, accept help, draw closer to God, visualize the resurrection. Doing these things has given many people, myself included, the strength to go on. My sincere condolences at this difficult time.

  17. Every day working with Steve was a good day. He always had a beautiful smile and a kind word. If you knew him then you knew his greatest gift in life was being a father. His boys made him so proud. I will miss him.

  18. Our whole family is sadden by your loss. Thoughts and prayers to all of you. Rest in peace Steve.

  19. Till we meet again my friend. You were my best employee at Concentric Network. I enjoyed working with you in the IT department. I could always count on you to ensure 2nd shift was in good hands. You will be missed…

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Dave E
