Steven was an awesome father, papa, brother, son and friend. He never met a stranger, to Steve, everyone was a friend. He loved to spoil his grandkids; they were the light of his life. Family meant the world to Steve as he loved family gatherings, cookouts and especially Christmas. He had a sweet tooth, loved his brownies and Reese’s and chocolate doughnuts with his coffee. His smile and laughter would always light up a room. He will be dearly missed as the auctioneer at the family reunion and Sunday morning breakfast at the coffee shop. Steve also loved to shop.
