Steve loved fishing, rock finding or walking the river bank. He and Lori loved to spend time outdoors and did anything for the grandkids. Over the years he perfected recipes for fudge and baked beans and shared with everyone. He was a genuine, giving soul and has made a big impact on us all. Everyone says what a great guy he was and he will be deeply missed by many friends and family. Happy Forever Fishing to this great Husband, Dad, Papa Bear!
