    Steve was a beloved cousin and “brother” to me as we used to see who could eat the most watermelon. I know that he is busy in heaven looking for that special wood working project that he can be involved in. Rest in peace my dear sweet cuz.

  3. To Portia, Sunday Joy and Georgia Lee I pray that you feel Jesus’ arms holding you so tight and hear the heart beat of Jesus and know that is His love for you. Steve is no longer suffering and his soul is at peace and I pray you feel that peace as you remember all the beautiful and loving memories of Steve in your hearts forever and always. Praying for all the family.
    These are some of my memories of Steve……
    Steve was a very kind soul. Thoughtful, caring and considerate of everyone. I remember when he finally talked me into going on “a date”. “Nothing but the best” that’s what he said. We went to a very nice steak house and he ordered me the best steak on menu. He loved playing the drums, dressing in his fancy suits for church and he loved his GTO or as he called it his “goat”. He ask me several times if I would like to drive the “goat” and of course I always said yes! Not too many did he let drive the “goat” so I felt very lucky and special to get asked. I will never forget how he screamed when me and others would sneak up on him as he was cleaning the church, especially on 16th & Clay. His face turned so red as the danced around the mop bucket and sometimes kicked the bucket of water on the floor then he made a big mess to clean, but it was worth it just to see him laugh at himself. He love playing the drums, dressing up in his fancy suits and his “goat” and he always worshiped God as he played drums. Steve is now in the beauty and splendor we all long to see one day. He is no longer in pain and enjoying his new life with Jesus! Resting In Praise (RIP) , so play your drums loud Steve as you Rest In Praise! (RIP)
