After serving in the Army, Steve went on to work 17 years as an air traffic controller at Chicago O’hare International Airport.

His work has ended and his earthly journey complete.  We will miss him, but we rest in full assurance of the Lord, we will be with him again in heavenly glory.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the staff of Allegan Medical Care Community for the loving care provided to Steve over the last two years.  Our family thanks you for your tireless service.
