Always the joker who liked to catch people off guard, Steve never failed to have a wise crack for any subject. Steve was an avid motorcycle fan, he thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely ride on his Honda Valkyrie on a nice day. He loved camping with his wife, Carole, and adored his beloved cat, Trouble. He was a great supporter of Toys for Tots, loved animals, and dearly loved his entire family. Steve was a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church in Saginaw, Michigan. He was an amazing husband, stepfather, grandfather, son, brother, and friend. Steven will be greatly missed by every person who was blessed to have known him.
Steven came from a large family. In addition to his loving wife, Carole, he is survived by his cat, Trouble, his stepson and wife, Justin and Destiny Gilbert; one sister, Sharon (Sam) Roberts; two brothers, Richard (Joyce) Wahl, Larry (Patricia) Wahl; granddaughters, Meridian Schram, Marlaina Schram, Haley Gilbert, Mackenzie Gilbert, and Autumn Schram, and many, many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Steve will always be remembered for being a goodhearted man, a fun guy, a loving family member, and a wonderful friend. We all love you, Steve, and you will always be in our hearts and minds. Thank you for gracing us with being such a loving part of our lives.
