  • Steve, thank you for being a great father in law. I enjoyed all the hunting expeditions we had together. Thank you for teaching me your carpentry skills, they helped me complete my home projects and couldn’t have done it without your knowledge. I will take care of your daughter Heather forever. Rest in peace in the heavens.

  • im sorry for your loss.you are in our prayers

  • Nancy, I am so very sorry you are going through this again, Steve was a great guy and loved you very much! I’m so happy he had you to take special care of him, everyone should think about this, life is short that of a vapor, always show and tell your loved ones how much you love them, when they are sick visit them, help when you can to give the care giver a break! When someone is more or less house bound its so hard for just one to do it all, now may Steve rest in Peace and also you my sweet friend, you are wore out and you will be rewarded in Heaven!

  • Nancy I’m so sorry Steve was a good person.

    God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
    Love Cousin Kate. Will miss you.

  • Dad, I will forever miss you. I miss your laugh and the little jokes you told. You made everyone laugh around you even when times were tough. You always were ready with great hunting stories and advice when you saw Dave, Tyler and Steve. Your stories became lessons learned and hilarious events in time. When I needed to talk you were there. I could call you on the phone or visit your home. I will never forget the times you spent with me, my family and our friends. You made our family get-togethers, holiday gatherings, BBQ activities and birthdays very joyous. Many hearts are broken now that you are gone. I will forever miss you. May you rest in peace. I love you.

  • Rest in peace my friend
