This comes as a shock, he always looked in the best of health even though he was battling cancer. He was the best of the best,a truly honest businessman with high integrity. He will be sorely missed. My prayers go out to his family and his extended family at Tolziens.

Steve was truly wonderful. He always made time to listen and to help provide assistance with whatever was needed. I will miss seeing him working on projects and hearing his jokes.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Steve will always be remembered among so many other great deeds as providing Kyle with his favorite first car and keeping it running for so long. What a mechanical genius. He was always there for his family, friends and customers with a smile and kind word. His gentle, kind soul will truly be missed. Maryann, Rob, Crystal and Bella--you will be in our thoughts and prayers as you say goodbye to such an amazing husband, father and grandfather. Love to you all.

I've known Steve and your family for what seems like an eternity. Just recently we were talking via messenger and he shared with me that he had some health challenges but told me how much he was enjoying his granddaughter. Steve was such a good guy and his presence will be missed by many. My condolences to Maryann, Steve's true partner in crime and to the children he loved so much, Rob and Crystal. May you find comfort during what I can imagine is a very difficult time.

Aunt Maryann, Robo Cop and Crystal - our heart goes out to you. Tara, I and the kids are thinking of you and will see you Wednesday. Thinking of better days... Uncle Steve always loved to call Katelyn a garbanzo bean when she was little, and talk to me about sailing with the captain .... Captain Morgan that is. And the first time I brought Tara in to meet family, we met him at the station and he got Tara laughing right away. Love you Uncle Steve.
