you have forever brought a smile to this world. you are so amazing dad. love you
"You never know what tomorrow may bring." A saying that is so beyond true, and also the scariest fact to face. Never would I have thought that you'd turn out to only be in my yesterdays dad.. As I sit here on my last leg of travel back home from Montana, there are a billion thoughts and stories I had experienced in the last week that I want to tell you about, my perspectives, people I had met, and how mackie is doing without her pop alive.. Being this far away from home by myself has made me miss you so much more, but I can't help but feel blessed with your strength and guidance with my bucketfuls of new experiences. I love you so much dad, you were so wise and truly knew it all.
"My children have me learn about myself everyday. The questions they ask of me brings joy and peace as they grow into their own.
I must be thankful, in doing that I feel better to take on new things." Who would've thought your new things would be heaven.. I love you Dad. Always will till the day I die and can see you again
You will always bring a smile to my face brother. All the years I was your banker, it was always a pleasure to see you. I will miss you. God Bless. God has a great angel now.
You always made everything ok, now I have to prove you did a job well done and i have to see you go. The reality of losing you has hit me agian for the thousandth time. yet I still cant believe this void here is truly happening. I am so gratful that I even had a man like you for my own father. It blows me away how lucky my siblings and I are. It just makes losing you that much harder though. i am comforted that you are with your mom and dad, because now i know how you felt to lose them. i cannot wait till i get to be with you yet I can wait and will have to. you have taught me what it is to be a good parent, and I thank god for Stevey'lynn. I just want to be the best I can for her, and do everything you did for me. I want to make people comfortable, i want to fix things, I will always better myself, and I want to be like you dad. I hope you know you did a good job in your life, and how loved you are by so many people. I miss you so so much, dad. thank you again and i love you. you will always be the my favorite person and true hero.
October 5th 2012 my little brother Steve left many of us wondering why such a caring and giving person was taken from us. It was an honor to be the brother of such an admirable and lovable person. I will cherish the memories of growing up with my brother and how we bonded throughout our entire lives. I truly was blessed when our mom gave birth to you Steve. I feel as if a part of me has passed along with you. Your legacy will never be forgotten like your smile, laugh and your undying generosity. My heart is heavy and the tears cloud my eyes because I reflect back and look at pictures of when we were little kids and wonder. Where has the time gone so fast and my brother gone way too early in his life. Love you Steve. Your brother Jimmy
Miss you big brother. I know that heaven needed an angel but I will forever miss you.
To Steve's family and friends, I was very saddened to read of Steve's passing. I was in Curtis HS with Steve. He was a very smart and kind person, who I believed had wisdom beyond his years. He was very friendly, and well liked by all who knew him at school. I am honored to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with all who's life he touched, and I have no doubt that he is in Gods hands.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. You will be missed and your friendship through our years in the navy will never be forgotten. May God bless you and your family.
You have always been the love of my life sweetheart....and I trust that you will be waiting for me, as you used to say.
Untill we are together again, you will never in a million years leave my heart. Love and kisses to you forever my love. Laurie
Steve, I cannot explain in words how much I am going to miss you. Even though I have only known you for a short period of time, you have really touched my heart and I will never ever forget you. Our Lord has called you home, and it's only in time that I will get to see you again. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and for always making me smile. You are truly going to be missed.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Steve I will miss seeing every time I go to the post office to bring Jerimi something. You were such a great friend and I will never ever forget you
With a heavy heart, I write theses words as I was lucky enough to call you cousin. My childhood is filled with wonderful memories of spending time with you in Staten island, riding the ferry to battery park, swimming in the pool and finding fascinating things you collected in your room. You always made us feel so welcome and safe, I wish we were able to spend more time together as adults. My deepest condolences to everyone in the family. May your memories be plentiful and your stories never ending. Love Sheila and Tim Fitzpatrick
When the Lord calls our loved ones home,he leaves a gift of memories. Stephen, thank you for being such a great and caring cousin! I will always remember the fun times we had as kids in Staten Island!
With my deepest sympathy to his children, siblings, and loved ones.

Steve: was a wonderful friend to our family. HE touched our hearts in a special way. HE loved his family and his friends with all his heart. HE will be greatly missed by the McAbee family.
Stephen, this candle represents You, You had the biggest and warmest heart and you will be missed so very much. My heart is aching for your Family, Love to you All.
Steve is going to be missed by so many. He touched the lives of everyone who met him who knew him. He touched my life in a way, that I will never forget all those talks we had. I am going to miss him so much. He was such a caring and loving person, he took good care of those He knew needed him the most. He loved so many, as well as so many loved him. His smiles, his hellos, his stories. He talked so much of his children, his family, going to New York. What a Blessing to know that he was able to go and see his family recently. I will find comfort in his loss, by knowing that He is in Heaven. God needed an Angel, and he took the Best Man for the Job, Stephen Michael Horan. May God Bless his family and loved ones through his loss.
Steve... Your family will be our prayers and thoughts. You were a gentle giant among man kind and will be missed by all.
Steve, Thank you for being our friend. My Husband & I will miss you. I used to tease you about the fact that a woman thought you looked like Superman. I thought you were a Super Man. Kind, Thoughtful and Honorable. I guess somebody slipped some cryptionite in your pocket.
I will miss you.
To Steve's family, My heart goes out to you. You were so lucky to have each other. He talked about you often. I hope you know our loved ones never really leave us. They will forever live in a our hearts and minds. If you listen they will guide you through life and still make you smile and laugh.
Little Stephen, You and your family are in our deepest thoughts and prayers! We love you
I will miss seeing you around Red Bluff and at the Post Office!
You've left a wonderful legacy behind with your children and grandchildren! What a wonderful family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers!!
