Steve was a graduate of Logan Elm High School in 1967. After graduation, Steve enlisted into the Army as a helicopter mechanic serving 4 years with tours in Vietnam. Steve retired from Kenworth Truck Company of Chillicothe in 2007 after more than 34 years of service.
Steve was known and loved by many for his kind heart, infectious laugh, big, warm hugs and solid fatherly advice. A hardworking man that was always a good provider for his family and friends alike. He passionately loved his sons, wife, grandchildren and friends deeply. Steve enjoyed fishing, hunting, being around a fire with good company, enjoying and talking about life. To have known Steve was a pleasure, in its own right, being in the presence of such an honorable man. The love for his daughters-in-law (Kimberly and Alena) was one of a kind, whether they were simply checking in, helping around the house, or having a heart to heart conversation. An unconditional love, never wavering and always appreciated.
If you knew Steve and Debbie, you most likely heard him say he would be lost without her knowing that they were soul mates. She proved to be right one, final time. Together in eternity, you will be deeply missed.
At his request, cremation services will be conducted by Haller Funeral Home & Crematory. A military graveside committal service will be scheduled and announced in the near future in Green Summit Cemetery, Adelphi. His online guest book is available at www.HallerFuneralHome.com
