God Bless Steve and May the perpetual light shine on him in heaven where I am sure he was greeted by Grandma Elley and his Mom and Dad. I will always treasure memories of Steve the sweet little boy we grew up with, and the handsome good man he grew up to be. We had such fun on those holidays at Grandmas and at your house. Even though He and Rick were mischievious and played tricks on us....remember the salt and pepper in our tea? May Steve rest in peace with our Lord.

My earliest memories of my brother was playing cowboys and Indians. Of course Donna and I were the nurses. We would have to fix them up after the gun battle. Steve introduced our family to all the latest music. Once a week he’d go to Record Rendezvous to by the top single of the week. So we danced and pretended to be the Beatles. Never will forget how special we’d feel when he picked us up from school in his 57 Chevy... all loud and stuff. He had a great sense of humor and a strong sense of family. As I spent more time with him these last ten years I came to know him more personally. I will miss our Sunday morning phone calls discussing everything from weather to politics. He was one of a kind. RIP big brother. Or as I fondly called him “Number 1 Son”. I miss you and I will see you again one day. Debi Clark.
