Steve was one of a kind. We had some fun times back in the day. Billy always smiled when reminiscing about the earlier years. I am keeping you in my prayers as the next weeks and months will be challenging and difficult. I know. Please call if there is anything I can do.

Sending my condolences to all of Steve's family and friends. He sure was one of a kind! He was a best friend to my brother Billy, who passed last year. Steve will be remembered always, for his huge smile, his contagious laughter and his kind heart. Sending lots of love and prayers your way. Nickie Gilbert McClain.
