We were so sorry to read of Steve's passing. Barbara and I always looked forward to seeing Steve when we gathered. He was always fun to talk to and helped us feel comfortable from our first days in the community. He is sure to be greatly missed.

The Denny family has many happy memories with Uncle Steve! He was such a wonderful example of working with a passion for what you truly love and are very gifted at while making a happy life at the same time. He was a true artisan carpenter who had the best sense of humor and was wildly intelligent beyond what he showed every day! We are so blessed by how he worked to maintain and improve "The Property" and make it the best place to visit summer after summer. He shared his special place with his family and for that we are forever thankful for the time, work and memories that we cherish! We miss you, Uncle Steve, and will always remember you at the St. Joe with family. We love you! Michael, Nici, Robyn, Ethan, Allyson and Owen

We were so saddened to receive notice of Steve’s passing. He was a true craftsman and friend. Our grandkids lovingly called him “Sandpaper Steve”. He accomplished many projects for us including restoration of furniture soaked in the 1996 St Joe River flood. R.I.P. my friend. Lezle and Andy Resor. Maple Valley, Washington

This photo says more about him than I could ever put into words. Steve made every moment I spent with him a learning, laughing, and memorable experience. Over the years, it was; chopping wood, building fires, fishing off the dock, eating as many pancakes as possible, potato launching, fishing, eagle spotting, and boating. His woodworking skills and overall gnome-like ways with carpentry are an everyday reminder of the beauties one person can imagine and then bring to life. This one simply complex man made a bigger impression on me in the handful of summers, dozen-ish phone calls, 50+ one on one conversations, and hundreds of stories from my parents, than any person could have. I’ll remember him fondly and am proud to say I knew him.

Uncle Steve was my great Uncle and I loved him with my whole heart. He was selfless and kind and so creative. Some of my earliest memories are of time spent with him and my Aunt on the St Joe River. He made it so that my kids have great memories of their great-grandparents and extended family as well as they are now life long best friends with their cousins. I am grateful for all the times he helped me and shared his time with me. He was generous to his core and was always there for the people he loved. Rest in Peace, Uncle Steve, you will live on in the lives of those who loved you!
