  2. My prayers go out to the whole family. Losing someone you love is so hard and I know from experience, but he is looking down at us smiling and in a better place. He sounds like a wonderful person. So sorry his time was short, but god has plans for him and he is going to be such a beautiful, loving guardian angel. Please let us know if you need anything. We love you. Love The McClains

  5. Kai and I love you, Mr. Steve! I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. From hanging out in the driveway, swimming, watching our son’s play sports to our amazing Disney Cruise with the Lynch family in 2012.

    The love you had for Kai is one of the hardest things I’ll miss. He loved his Mister Steve and maybe lil more when you made him chocolate chip pancakes.

    We are blessed to have had you in our lives and you will forever be in our hearts! We love you and and feel some comfort knowing you and Michelle are looking down on all of us from heaven. Two of the sweetest angels in heaven. I love you my friend!

  18. Heidi,

    We were so sorry to hear about Steve. He was such a charming and funny guy. I’ll miss him teasing me about running a chainsaw and doing my own yard work.

    We are thinking of you and your family.

  19. I never knew anyone who did not like Steve Fisher. He was a fellow Nite Owl Superette Tiger through Little League years (we always finished second), and a Spring Hill Rebel football player (we always finished first). Steve was exceptional in everything he did and I particularly remember his dyed hair in junior high, spending the night at his place and the time Steve travelled to Pittsburgh with my family to see the Pirates. Steve was incredibly popular primarily due to his big personality and great family. My sincere condolences to Jeff and Steve’s entire family.

  23. Heidi, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and the loss of a father for Ross and Stefanie. Know that he is in a better place where that old cancer can’t make him sick anymore. Time will lessen your grief but you always have your memories of the good times you had together as a family. God Bless you all!
