Celebration of Steven

Steven was trying to get to his parents house this past Monday, October 9, 2017 to help evacuate due to the Canyon Fire.  On his way there, a truck pulled out in front of his motorcycle and he was killed instantly.  Steven lived his life the way he wanted,  and was the first to step up and help anyone in need.  He died on the second anniversary of the day he proposed to his "Beauty", Shevelle.  Only married for one year, they were building their future one day at a time.  Steven was a father to beautiful Savannah or "Chicken Little" who he absolutely loved and adored and the feelings were mutual.  In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Savannah's college fund and help for Shevelle.  We know Steven would be happy to know that through this tragedy comes a gift for the two people he loved fiercely- Shevelle and Savannah.   Steven's mom Melanie will manage this account and ensure that donations get to Savannah and Shevelle.  Thank you to everyone who have embraced us during this terrible time.  We lost Steven on this earth, but gained an angel on our shoulders.
