I’m sorry it’s taken so long for me to face this task. And this isn’t going to be the way others do it but here goes. How do I put in words what it’s been like to be a part of his life for almost 40 years. As many here have stated a man of such quality and tenderness to all. I had given up and turned over my search to God and he delivered! We lived a “Wonderful Life” just full of awesome friends and family! His son Stephen and his children Alyssa ,Austin ,Dianna and Alyssa’s son Caleb have warmed our souls and continue to be one of the towers that holds me up!
The other Tower is my son his stepson Larry! Steve proved to be the best thing that could have happened for us both. Larry and his wife Luminitza and their little Sofia fill us with joy and strength. Larry has said Steve’s sense of fairness and justice impressed him to his core.
His sister Vickie and her large family would always gather at our place for wonderful Christmas feasts and fun . Steve and I still cherish those memories. Steve and she were devoted to both mother and father.
My sister from another mother Chris has known us as a couple almost from our beginning and I just don’t know what I would do without her.
Steve has so many great and talented family/ friends that he admired and loved. He had a lot to live for, but just could not. I know people say don’t worry he’s in a better place, and I assure you he is!
I weep for me for I will never stop missing that man of mine!
Steve I love you to infinity and beyond!
Your wife Joyce
PS we will add to this site a day and place after the 1st of the year when we will gather to “Celebrate his Life” This will occur in Indianapolis or Carmel, IN.
