It has been a long while since seeing Steve but I have often thought of him. He had a wonderful talent and a great sense of humor. Steve had a good heart and would help anyone that he could. He will be missed. I am sorry for the loss to his family.

saying I'm sorry for your loss is not enough when it comes to the loss of a loved one but that is what we say. our prayers go out to the family I growed up with Steve thru school and thru our church there was something special about him and these things is what he will be remembered for. now
we can say that He is singing with the angels and mom and dad don't have to worry anymore. As a parent we always want our children to go to heaven now Guy and Colene know that he is in the presence of the Lord

I'm so sorry to hear about this and your loss. I hope the best for your family and i will keep you all in my thoughts.

I don't mean any offense by this but, you typed sons and only put one of them. I think you forgot about Seth.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of "Jive". He was always so friendly to me. He had a great sense of humor and was a great bass player. I know he was a great paw paw too. I am praying that his family finds peace and comfort at this sorrowful time.

Met and became friends with "Jive" in the 70`s . Nothing but the best of times wherever "Jive" was involved ! One of my closest friends even when we were out of touch in person , we were always in touch in our hearts .All my family loved to have "Jive" , "Butch Sears", and "Butch England" come over to the house and have a "Jam" session in my living room ! I wish I had known about "Jive" crossing over sooner , I would have loved to have attended his service. GOD`s Blessing`s for his family.... Barry Jones [ Sr. ]
