Steve will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor and mischievous smile. He could tell the best jokes and loved telling them to everyone. He was a hunting enthusiast and loved hunting with his kids, then his grandkids. Steve really enjoyed sitting outside on the porch with Kathie watching wildlife. He also loved all the reruns of Gunsmoke. He told all of his kids that he had a good life and he left us with so many wonderful memories.
