He will be missed tremendously.  GOD BLESS YINZ ALL😇❤😇❤

Jen and Traven,
I am so sorry to hear about Steve. Despite his gruff exterior, he was a marshmallow on the inside. There isn't anything he wouldn't do for his family.
I know your hearts are broken but know that you have a support system who will do anything to help-lean on them for strength.
Love you both,

Like others have said, despite his gruff appearance, Steve was a family man and a true softy. He was always very kind to our family and showed love to our older son. Levi always loved to go to the store, partially to visit his dad, but also to see Steve. Even when he was going through his shy phase, he always loved to see Steve (probably partially because Steve always bribed him with donuts). He was also very kind to our family after our baby was born prematurely last summer. We're sorry Steve will never get the opportunity to meet Hunter, but we'll forever be grateful for the kindness and hope he always had for our family.
