    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May all the great memories you shared together be a comfort when you are missing him. He is now in peace and probably in his heavenly body dancing a cumbia. Lol
    I am thankful to have shared good memories with the family. The setx fair, flea market trips and going to dances all around Beaumont.
    I know he loves his family very much. All I can say is that I am sure he will still be with you in spirit looking out for you. God’s peace and strength be with you. Much Love.

    I worked with Steve at the tire store in 1975. He was a perfect gentleman—kind, polite, and good hearted. Sincere sympathy is offered to his friends and family during this hard time.
