On This Day, 6-APR 2008, We Honor a Fallen Hero

Steve was a determined young man with high aspirations and goals at a young age. Joan remembers how Steve was always falling asleep in first period English.  Steve had a paper route back then and delivered papers from about 3:00 to 5:00 am.  He saved his money from his paper route to buy a Plymouth Road Runner.  Steve loved fast cars and motorcycles.  

Perhaps one of the greatest compliments was paid by his ex-wife Joan Souders and echoed by many who served with Steve. “He was a soldier for the soldiers. He always wanted to make sure the soldiers had what they needed.”
