He was a long-time member of Olive Baptist Church where he volunteered at the Welcome Center. He enjoyed traveling and spending time with Debbie and his family, maintaining a pristine lawn, and playing golf as often as he could. Those who knew him well, knew that Steve was extraordinarily faithful and generous; loving God and caring deeply for the love of his life and his family. He was a grateful man who enjoyed his life; he never met a stranger, frequently teased those he loved, and always had a smile for everyone. He would want everyone to remember the smile he placed on your face and the laughter in your heart.

The family will receive visitors on Monday, January 2, 2017, at Olive Baptist Church from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Services will follow immediately at 1 p.m. with a graveside service to follow at Pensacola Memorial Gardens.
