Condolence & Memory Journal

Such a soft-spoken man with a great smile all the time. Sure will miss our lengthly catch-up talks over my back yard fence this spring. Steve was our new neighbor for too short a time. My sincere sympathies to Chris and her family.

You were the true friend of mom and dad(Bob&Ginny). You also cared about their children. You were always a kind,compassionate, and loyal friend. You will be missed.

My deepest sympathies to Chris, Jackie and the entire family. Steve was a gentle man and good friend of Big Al, whom I'm sure was waiting for you with open arms. Rest In Peace, Steve❤
