Steve became a Christian while serving in the Navy. He was very active with his church family in Hastings where he attended the Evangelical Free Church. There he served on the property committee and as an usher for many years, as well as helping out in children’s ministries.

Steve enjoyed spending time outdoors. He loved working at home in his yard, in the garden, and on his boat. He shared his love of boating and fishing with his family; many weekends were spent on the lake with his wife and sons.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, Delbert and mother, Shirley.

He is survived by his wife, Sylvia; two sons, Andrew (Allissa) and Mark; grandsons; brother, Ronald; as well as many nephews and nieces.
