  1. Steve and I became really great friends at Carquest. He was the father I wish I had. He was always there for me and helped me in the most needed times. I’m going to miss his hugs, smiles, jokes, b.s., and honesty. I love you so much buddy.

  2. Going to miss a great friend as we grew up. We had a great time he always had a great laugh and a quick wit.

  3. Art, Casey & I loved Steve as family. He was a good man & great friend. Art & Steve were lifetime friends. We rode a lot of miles together on our Harley’s. We had shared friends & family members with lots of wonderful memories. We are so sorry Treva, Josh, Meagan, Rod, Rita, family & friends. He will be in our hearts forever. Sending hugs, love & prayers.
