Steven worked in the construction industry for his entire life. He was the jack of all trades and always there to help whom ever needed it. He loved to fish and hunt in his free time. Spending time camping at Riverbend in West Virginia with family, friends and friends that became family was the highlight of his life. He was always the life of the party and the guy who was sure to make you laugh. Classic cars and hotrods always brought a smile to his face weather working on his own, helping someone else with theres or seeing one drive by. His Retirement as a Snow bird Floridian where he continued to be the jack of all trades for his neighbors brought much joy to the past four years of his life. Steven was the man we all loved to know and knew we could call on him for anything. He loved to make you laugh, help you in a time of need, fix something that is broken or help you build any project weather big or small. Steven will be missed by all and forgotten by none. May he rest in eternal Peace.

“We knew so little that morning.
That God would call your name.
In life we loved you dearly.
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For Part of us were with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories.
Your Love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you.
Your are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken.
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one.
The chain will link again .”

Condolences may be sent to the family at Gentry-Morrison Funeral Homes.
