    We are so sorry about Steve’s passing. It was a pleasure to be around Steve. He was a very intelligent man that showed so much love & pride for his son, Brannon. He never showed up at a family dinner without contributing something he had made & often it was something he had grown in his garden. Steve will be greatly missed by his son, his mother and all who knew him.
    May the family find comfort knowing Steve will forever remain in our hearts & memories.

    Steve had to be one of the most patient men that God put on this earth. He was a great Boss and very caring person to many. He was a very proud Dad and we will keep Brannon and Elena in our prayers, as well as his Mother Betty. Our little church is really going to miss him. We have lost our baritone singer.

    “Swampy” made a difference far from home for many people around the country who only knew him by the fine products he supplied to those of us in the competitive shooting world, RIP

    I knew Steve only as a fellow believer and high power rifle shooter but in times spent on the range and sharing a quiet evening relaxing after wards at Bucksnort shooting club I thought Steve to be a kind and thoughtful man. My family and I offer our condolences to his family. May the hope of our salvation and eternal peace in the love of Jesus Christ be yours in this time of sorrow.

    I knew Steve only through his business as Swampy, his competition bullets. He was always great to chat to and share his views. He will be missed. Craig
