The chief of mean hotcakes and master of catchphrases, Steve would walk into any room with his cheerful smile and “still kicking and wiggling,” lighting up the room. Driving was his specialty, and he knew every great stop around the Mother Lode. A wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Steve will be missed by many. As he would say, “A good time was had by all.”
