My dad was an amazing man who would do anything for anyone. I know he's in heaven watching down on us and giving us that wonderful smile. I remember when I was a little girl and he would take me on bike rides. He had one of those child seats on the back of his bike so that he could take me with him. We'd stop down at Kings Gap store and he'd buy my fishies and a strawberry soda. My dad used to be a bus driver and he'd take me along with him on the bus. I have so many memories that I will always have cherished in my heart. I admired my dad. He was my superman. He will be missed so much. I'm sure he's watching down on us and giving us that wonderful smile. I love you dad! Until I see you again, rest peacefully! 💗💞

My name is Ruth Stough Gleim. I’m a second cousin with your dad. And yes I do remember his smile. I didn’t spend a lot of time with Steve but good memories of the time I did. I’m so sorry for your loss but hang on to your memories. I’m sure he’s looking down on all of you.
