Steve enjoyed farming, building his dream semi “Poison Ivy” for hauling grain. Steve worked as an owner/operator truckdriver, just like his father did.
He especially enjoyed spending time with family and friends, everyone looked forward to his “World Famous” brisket and pulled pork. The most precious time was spent with his daughter and two granddaughters, Averie and Paislee, and all the adventures they went on with him.

Our Sincere Condolences
Bold Transportation extends our deepest sympathy for the loss of Steven. Our condolences to the family.
My deepest condolences to Steve’s family and loved ones, and especially to Caitlin and Shelly.
There are no words that can be said to take away the sorrow and sadness. I can only speak of the gratitude I feel for having known him. He was a loyal friend to me and I feel blessed to have known him. He was one of the most sincere and giving people I have ever known. He helped me through the most difficult times of my life, the past four and a half years, and for that I will be forever grateful. I adored him and will miss him terribly. Heaven sure hit the jackpot with his arrival, and it is wonderful that he is able to be with his parents and grandparents again whom he loved so very much.
Peace to you my friend. Until we meet again.
So sad to hear of Steve’s passing. Our condolences to his family. Been many years since we had seen him but memories growing up on same street hanging together and over years catching up will always be there. Deepest sympathy.
