Steve lived his life as best as he could with the strong belief that family is king! For those who knew him know that the most important thing in his life was the happiness, joy, and success of his wonderful daughters he leaves behind. His eldest Jody of Stevensville, Stephanie “Stevie” of Benton Harbor, and youngest Hannah of Stevensville, all of whom were able to be near him when he passed away. He is also survived by both parents of Benton Harbor, and his younger siblings, Paul (Janice) Eagle of Stevensville, and Michelle (Eric) Roberts of Benton Harbor, along with nieces, nephews, aunts & uncles and many friends.
Steve’s heart was truly with his soulmate Nancy Mead of Baroda, along with her two children Lexi and Alex, who also looked to Steve as someone special in their lives. Steve was very thankful to God for giving him the opportunity to have them in his life. Steve always made sure that the ones dearest and closest to him were doing well, a trait he received from his mother. Steve taught the same values and life lessons he learned from his father Larry, to all of his children. He wanted people to be able to learn and live from the mistakes he made, trying to let people know that they are special to him and he truly wanted everyone to be happy. Steve has friends and family all across our nation, and was loved and respected by all who knew him.
