He was preceded in death by his mother and father and his granddaughter, Jessalyn Renee Young.
Steve married his lifelong love, June Allen, on Sept. 2, 1973. They welcomed 3 children, and later 7 grandchildren, into their family, and he was a devoted Daddy and Papa. He was a loyal friend to more people than can be counted and a man of his word. He was a man of great integrity who loved his life and his family was his greatest joy, accomplishment and treasure. He taught his children and grandchildren that family is everything, to be honest and true to your word, to fight for what you believe in and to never give up. Above all else, he taught by example to love fiercely and without ceasing. He was an amazing example of what it means to be a "real man," and was an influence to more people than he ever realized.
Steve will be greatly missed by his wife, June, his children, Stephanie (Chris) Moody, Jamey (Tanesha) Young and Brad (Mindy) Young and grandchildren, Laura Lynn, J.R., Brantly, Brynne, Anna and Maddox, and was surely reunited with his parents and Jessalyn Renee - Papa's "Toot Toot."
