We are so sorry for your loss! Debra and Gordon Place , June 6, 2020 Steve was my brother in law for 20 years and I loved him dearly. I am thankful he is whole again and not suffering. Thinking of us children and dad during this hard time. Much love, Amy Beard
Amy Beard, June 6, 2020 Re-daddy... I will forever cherish all the wonderful memories of times spent with you, way back when. Rest in sweet peace, love & light... Laura Benedict Scott, June 6, 2020 I first met Stephen when he and the family came back from Jordan after the passing of his litle sister Valerie. I remember him as a great kid who excelled in everything he tried and was the pride of his parents. Watching him grow into the fine man he had become was inspiring. He was a devoted father and a marvelous support to his parents. Finally when Lucretia came into his life, he was experiencing a positive reset and true happiness. Rest in peace, Stephen. There are many still on this planet who are better for you being here, who will gently cradle your memory and will reconnect with you on the other side.

His kindness, calm, guidance, and care taught me lessons personally and professionally that I will hold close and never forget.
