He was preceded in death by his parents Richard and Dorothy (Goodrich) Marotte and sister, Joan Arentz. Steve grew up in Walnut Creek and attended Del Valle High School and graduated from Sacramento State University in 1971 with a degree in Economics. Steve spent the majority of his career in commercial property management in Santa Rosa and moved to Sacramento in 1995. He was a fan of both the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. Steve will always be remembered for making the best weekend breakfasts with unlimited pancakes. At his request, there will be no services. Rest in peace Dad, you will be greatly missed.
