Just to let you know a little background and how close and loved Steve was by the family, Steve's Mom was in the hospital a couple weeks ago with intestinal blockage caused by scar tissue from earlier cancer and Steve called everyday to check on her even though he was working at Boeing and not able to visit as often as he would like.
Once Mom was released from the hospital she was fine for a couple days until she slipped and fell on her patio and broke her hip and wrist so it was back to the hospital and Steve called everyday to check on her up until she was admitted for surgery to have pins put in her leg, hip and wrist. Mom fought the doctors to get home for Easter so they let her come home Easter Day.
Unknown to her, Steve's brother's and sister hadn't heard from Steve for a couple days prior to Easter and everyone was worried as Steve had called everyday prior to that to check on Mom. One of Steve's brother's went to Steve's apartment in Everett to check up on him and unfortunately found Steve sitting at his dinner table deceased. The cause of death is unknown at this time. Steve was very close to all his siblings and Mom and everyone has taken his loss extremely hard.
If possible and you find it in your heart please contribute to Steve's funeral fund to at least help take the burden of the funeral cost off the family. Thank you everyone that can help and those that can't help but keep the family in their thoughts and prayers.
Stay close to family and tell them you love them often.
