Born 9/26/1943, died very early 7/6/2008 peacefully at home in the arms of his favorite wife Diana. He is also survived by his favorite son Brett, favorite daughter Francesca (Jim) Stracke; and grandsons Todd (9) and Ryan (7), as well as his mother and five siblings. He will always be remembered for his humor and care for others which put people at ease and made them feel welcome. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and he always bragged how proud he was of his kids and grandkids. We are comforted that Steve is now free from his many physical illnesses and in the presence of his Lord and Savior and he would want everyone to know his Lord and share this comfort.
