I worked with Steve for a few years after I was out of the military. I remember Steve as a person of great character and enjoyed learning from him. I cannot think of a time I disagreed with him and appreciated his counsel. He was the type of person that made others around him better people. I grieve your loss. God Bless

Michelle, Josh, Jessica and Shelby,
I’m so very for the loss of your husband and father. Steve and I worked together on many projects at Valmont and in my final capacity at Valmont as coworkers in the warranty and reliability department. I learned so much from him through our careers there. He talked about his kids all the time as my son went to school with Shelby. He was a wonderful colleague and a great friend. You kids have so much to be proud of with regards to your father. Prayers to you all and I hope you find comfort that he is no longer in pain.
