Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Boonville, MO. Steve worked for the Isle of Capri Casino for 10 years, City of Boonville for 18 years, Miltenberger Oil for five years, but his favorite job was helping at the local Dairy Queen that his parents owned an operated. Steve loved bald eagles and flew his flag high and proud, he loved animals especially his kitty cats. He was chairman of the board at Village of Windsor Place and was adamant to make things better for the village. You could find Steve cruising in his black Chevrolet pickup that was his baby. It was always shiny and clean. He never met a stranger and could talk to anyone.

He is survived by his wife Joyce of the home, fur babies, Maggie, Kayla, Annie, Lacey and Molly, sisters, Colleen Starr (Xavier Clavell) of Girona, Spain, Meribeth Myers of Columbia, MO., and aunt, Mrs. Helen “Peachie” Vinson.
