PART 1 CONTNUED...With there musical talents. Why I keep asking myself, why? The only thing I can come up with is that heaven needed another angel. He was happy when I spoke to him on Labor Day. Very excited about his new job opportunity. I believe he would of done amazing things in the Dells . He told me he was in a happy place in his life, and that things were finally falling into place for him.He also told me of the love he had for his mom. May the Lord guide you through this difficult time of sorrow. When ever we see a guitar or a golf cart, we will fondly remember the print Steve left on our hearts. Fly free, Steve. You have earned your wings.
Love, Mary Lee and Family, Diane Mckay and Family, and Sharon Loomis and Family.
Dear Carol and Family:
We are saddened beyond belief of the unexpected passing of Steve. He was a kind and caring gentleman who left a huge impact on my family and this world. Both Steve and Eddie used to entertain my dad up at the lake
