    Laura and family, even though I have been out of touch socially with a majority of people, Steve has always been one of my friends who hold a special place in my heart. I myself am devastated at learning of Steve’s passing. Somehow the news of Steve’s health had bypassed me until Tuesday so needlessly it hit me hard. I cannot even imagine what you are going though. Just know I hold you and your family in my heart and

    Steve finally gets to meet Jesus, face to face! For myself, I’m very, very sad, but for Steve I’m happy! To me, it seems a bit early, but God had other plans! Steve was a God fearing man, and evidently finished his work here on earth! My heart and prayers go out for his beloved wife left behind, Laurie Wagoner Laumbattus! I’ll miss you my ole buddy, til we meet again! Love ya!

    My heart goes out to all of Steve’s family. I can’t believe he is gone. He always came in Casey’s early for coffee and a newspaper. He was so nice and always called me “sunshine”.

    Steve was one of the most sincere and positive persons I have ever met. In the nearly twenty five years I knew him, I never once, heard him utter an unkind word about anyone. He always took time to say, “hello” and he was always smiling. This world grows a little darker for not having him in it. He was very special. We could all take a lesson in kindness from Steve. My heart goes out to Laurie and all of his family.

    God’s gain an angel, but we lost a great friend. I will miss his goofy grin and his great big heart. Steve once told me after a Lions Club meeting that he never wanted to be as old as I am. Which I’m 6 yrs older, so I thank God that he didn’t get that wish and that he was given the gift of marrying the love of his life and gaining his own family. Steve, we will miss you, grieve you and celebrate your life but we will never forget you!

    I was lucky enough to know Steve. He always had a smile and could make you laugh in a minute. And strong, he was strong and kind. That’s what I remember the most. I will miss you, Steve.
