Im so very sorry to hear of steves passing. He fought hard for so long!! Prayers to nicci and kids and his extended family. Steve was such a nice guy!
I always knew him as Steven in elementary.. or later in football we called him “Rummel” — I remember always liking him as a person even if we didn’t hang out much. We were classmates who got along well. He seemed to be pretty down to earth – he helped me with some plays in football after I clearly hadn’t been paying attention for weeks. Definitely a good guy and I know he’ll be missed by many. RIP Brother
We will continue to pray for your family in the years to come. Steve was always so proud of his wife and his kids.
