Steve and I worked together for several years at Resinall Corporation. It was a pleasure working with and getting to know Steve. Steve was the type of person who would go out of his way to help anyone he could. I remember Steve as an individual that was full of life, had a positive attitude and thought the world of his family. The Earth will not be the same without Steve, but Heaven got a shining star. RIP my friend!

We’re deeply saddened by the loss of a good friend, a friend that could always manage a laugh or a smile. Many are the good memories of times spent together with the Blowes. I’ll always remember Steve’s feeble but determined attempts at his Droopie Dog impression and his favorite beach music, “Little Brown Man Sings”. Much Love Always…

I hadn’t known your father long, just since the last 2 years mostly, he would ride up to the store here in Woodland and tell my husband and I a joke, or laugh a bit, he had kind way about him, I am sorry for your loss and know he is now in a safe, secure, good place in his afterlife.

When we met your family, it was an instant love for you guys. Camping those years at Twin Lakes was some of the best times of our lives. Our memories of all of our times together everywhere will forever be in our hearts. Steve was so full of life that it was hard for everyone to see his health fail. I know that your family will miss him. I hate that he won’t be around to watch his grandchildren grow up. He talked of his family with such love & pride. Jess & Ryan know that he will always remain with you. I have some vacation pictures on my wall at work with your parents in them and I look at them often. I love all of you very much & will be praying for all of you.

To Steve’s Family,

I extend my deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your dear loved one. Steve and I are cousins and I will miss him too. He had a loving and kind heart. His warm smile always lit up his face when he met friends and loved ones. We always greeted with a hug and a kiss. He seemed so happy the last times I saw him, full of pride in Ryan and Jessica and his special grandchildren. Please know that he will be missed in the St. Johns and Menola community by many friends. God bless you all.
