Steven Gerard Smith, June 30, 1958-September 14, 2020.
Steve died of pneumonia after a two and a half year battle with Stage 4, Small Cell Lung Cancer. He was Catholic and owner of his 30 year business, Steve's Renovations, where he enjoyed remodeling client's homes and businesses.
Steve was married for 25 years to Theresa (Terri) of whom he spent 32 years of his life with. Steve's greatest treasure was his children, Grant and Chloe. If you ever wanted to see him beam with pride, all you had to do was ask about his kids.
He was fiercely loyal to his family and friends, had a great dry sense of humor and loved a good story over a shared bourbon, or two, or three. His hobbies were watching his kids play sports, working on his house and always lending a hand to help others with their remodeling needs. If anyone ever asked about the content of Steve's character, people would say, "Steve is a good man."
Steve was the youngest of 11 kids, and joins in Heaven, his parents, Helen and Eric, and his two brothers, Tommy and Charlie. He is survived by Joseph Smith (Barbara), Judy Buechler Marcus (Merritt), Jack Smith (Cheryl), Kathy Fritz (Bob), James "Gene" Smith (Donna), Barbara Puente (George), Anna Marie Cosgrove (Bill), Martha Smith, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
