  • Mark Steuding Steve would come down to the dock at Half Moon Lake quite frequently during the warm weather. I always looked forward to seeing him there. I swear he could catch fish in a mud puddle! Enjoyed his company and his stories. I'm sure Jeannie (the lady that was on the dock the most time during summer) will miss him, as I will.

    We're always thinking of you! The three of you were like a second family to me. Uncle Steve helped teach me to hunt, fish, and play pool. Things I missed when I moved away. Our love, and prayers go out to you.

  • Mike Black Marty and John, my condolences to you and all your family.
    Steve was a great friend of mine and will be missed. I have thought of Steve a lot over the years. We spent so many days together in the duck blinds, deer stands and in the boat that he will always be in my thoughts.
    Peace to you all.
