Please keep positive thoughts and prayers in your day for Steve and his family. While at a motorcycle rally in Sturgis, SD, Steve was victim of a horrific accident which occurred while he was walking back to his campsite.
He texted his wife, Margaret, on August 7, 2018 at 12:30 am Mountain Time to let her know he was on walking back to the campsite, as he wanted to get an early start to make his way home. Sometime between his text to Margaret and 1:00 am, their lives were forever changed. An anonymous tip to police stated someone had been hit by a golf cart. Steve was taken to the hospital, unconscious. Police notified Steve's son that he was in critical condition with a traumatic brain injury. The driver of the cart never stopped and has not turned themselves in. There are no further details available at this time, but the investigation continues.
His healing is slow. Steve remains in a coma at the Rapid City Regional Hospital in SD with a traumatic brain injury. God willing, once Steve is stabilized he will be transported to the Milwaukee area via flight for life where he will reside in a Long Term Acute Care for rehabilitation, followed by more intensive brain injury rehabilitation at a second facility.
With his wife and daughter continuously at his side, they are incurring expenses none of us could anticipate. Margaret, a self-employed hairdresser, is unable to work while she is away from their Milwaukee, WI area home. While this is financially and emotionally devastating, their faith is keeping them strong. We ask you say a prayer and make a donation to help ease their heavy burdens. They are forever grateful for the love, prayer and support for Steve and his family.
Steve and his family (Dylan, Margaret and Morgan) in need of your prayers and positive thoughts.
