Throughout Steve’s life, he worked for Sally Port Inn, NMMI, and Tinnie Mercantile and Deli. He was overwhelmed with joy when he learned about his new grandson, baby Maddux. Steve’s greatest joy in life was to be with his family, he loved them more than anything.
Some of Steve’s favorite things to do were to watch his nephews, Frank and Cristian De La O, play basketball for the RHS Coyotes. He loved joking around and listening to music with his niece, Bianca De La O. His most treasured memories were playing lotería with his mom, sister, Tina, Rita, Ricky, Rosie and whoever else wanted to join. There was never a dull moment when Steve was around. He had a great love for his dear friend (family), Cathy Burch. Steve loved the paintings she would do for him on his windows during Christmas.

My Big Brother

“You showed me a lot of things, I learned a lot I didn’t know.But you forgot to teach me one last thing, how to let you go.I know you didn’t mean to leave me,sometimes we have no choice.I miss being your little sister,Hearing your name called by your voiceI wish I got to say “I Love You” before you were given to the sky.You always meant so much to meI could never love you less.I know it’s true when they say He only takes the best.“RIP brother. I Love You.”

— Your baby sister, Rita
