Stephen spent most of his life in the

While working on a combine he caught his hand in the machinery and lost a finger on his
hand. He felt very comfortable doing farm work for much of his adult life. In 2003 he was hired by Lloyd’s Complete Auto
in Chandler. When NAPA bought the store Steve continued to work there until his retirement in 2021.
Steve was preceded in death by his parents and
Timothy. He is survived by his three bossy sisters: LaFon Baker, Beverly Gamble and Cheryl Turner. (He would say “Amen to that.”)
