Ann and family; I'm so sorry to learn of Steve's passing.
I never talked with him much, but DID attend Mt Lebanon Church with him and his family, after moving back to Bostic. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you comfort, and peace, during this difficult, stressful time.
Love you, Georgia

I worked with Steve at Stonecutter Mills for years. Also saw him helping with a project at Ultimate Textile a few times. I actually have some shelves in my home that he built for my husband years ago. A really good person and I'm sure he will be truly missed. All my sympathy goes out to the family, and you are in our hearts and prayers.

Steve was always a pleasure to work with. He was always helpful, except maybe to those Clemson fans who got lost on the way to the big game and wound up in Ellenboro asking directions. He always had great stories about Stonecutter and personal life.

Dena, Chrissy, Traci & Shannon,

Prayers for you & your family during this time of sorrow. Steve was a good, honest & caring man. I remember when I was way younger & would spend the night with Chrissy, he treated me as though I was part of the family. Steve has helped my family twice within the past 2 years & most recent, helping my dad. He never hesitated when it came to helping others. Our hearts go out to you all. Praying God will comfort & guide you during this time of grief.
