Steve was kind in nature and warm in spirit. He was always willing to render assistance where needed. He was a fun, self-sacrificing husband, father, brother, son, friend, and grandfather. He will be well remembered for his encouraging words and generous deeds; and as someone who loved Jehovah God, had strong faith, and who firmly believed in the resurrection hope. – John 5:28, 29

His greatest love was for his Heavenly Father, Jehovah God. So, on June 15, 1996, he was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and vowed to do God’s will all the days of his life. Brother Stuart shared fully in the preaching and disciple-making work for (over) 27 years. He enjoyed teaching people about Jehovah, Jesus Christ, and God’s Kingdom.
