Steve had a particular fondness for classic cars and could often be found tinkering away, enjoying the craftsmanship and history behind each vehicle. A lover of simple pleasures, he cherished a good home-cooked meal shared with those close to him.

Steve is also survived by his siblings, Wanda Rhodes and Rick (Beth) Clawson, and nieces and nephew: Becky (Donald) Wiseman, Judy Ambrose, Joe (Sherry) Chapman, Maggie (Chris) Turnbo, and Jessica (David) Chatman. His aunt, Dorothy Thomason. Additionally, Steve is remembered by his former friend and employer, John Colley, and several cousins, great-nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Steve is preceded in death by his sister, Linda Chapman, brother, Sherrill Clawson, and nephews Johnny Ambrose and Rusty Chapman.
