************************************************
On February 2, 2017, we were notified of very vague details regarding the sudden death of Steve Schuster.
All we know so far is that after being out of work for a few weeks time; Steve was excited and eager to start a new job. That was to be the place of his passing. He reportedly felt short of breath and went in the car to rest a bit.. when they went to check on him, his new boss and co-workers found him unresponsive. We were told at the hospital that they worked on him for almost an hour and did everything they could to possibly do, but he was gone. 

We were given the chance to say our goodbyes. Myself, my partner (Joseph Schuster), and one of his other two sons (Johnny) were able to see him one last time to say goodbye and pray together before the medical examiner came to take him for the autopsy. *Steve left behind  three boys: Joseph, Mikey, and Johnny*

Steve's family is obviously devastated from this sudden, unexpected passing of a man who was way too young to leave us. He was only 52 years old! He had no income, no medical insurance, or life insurance policy. Nothing. 

We are asking ANYONE ...friends, family, acquaintances, and strangers to help us by donating even a small amount (every bit helps)  to help lessen the finanical burden during this difficult time. Steve was a very religious man. He knew the Lord and he knew his Bible. He spoke of it often and even talked about going Home to be with the Lord. Because he was so devout in his religous beliefs; we are hoping to have a small memorial at a Christian Church sometime after his cremation which is what he would have wanted. 

Note: The family needs to raise some money ASAP so that the funeral home can see what they can do on their end of things, but we need to still purchase the urn and of course pay for the services at the funeral home before he can be released and before a memorial can be planned. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this .. if you can help, we are greatly appreciative of any help no matter how small... if you cannot donate, please share this story on your wall. 

Sincerely, 

The Family of Steven Schuster

Steve was a wonderful person. He had a heart bigger than his head. He loved his family and his God. He also loved animals. He was somehow a pussycat and also a tiger, at the same time. He was all man and, a good friend. He was a great little brother and, I will ever miss him.
