    I will miss seeing Steve when we are home visiting. My last memory is a good one. Hanging out at the cabin, sitting on the boat dock, kids fishing and swimming, and of course going back and forth about our NASCAR drivers. RIP cousin, you will be missed.

    Whether we were talking to him about fishing, the cabin, or just life in general, cousin Steve was always a pleasure to be around. He was also a great zombie shooter with our son Chance. It's a comfort knowing he is with his dad and Uncle Charlie now. He will be missed by all.
