Stephen L. Cullins, 63, of Spring, TX, passed away Sunday morning December 10, 2017. Steve was born in Cushing, Oklahoma, August 13, 1954 and was the first born child to Henry L. and Beverly Cullins.
Steve was a man of many endeavors and his talent was sales. Steve started college at LSU and graduated from California State Hayward in 1982. He worked in sales at C.F. Airfreight, AT&T and Sonitrol in San Francisco. In 1987, he left the Bay Area and moved to Houston to be closer to family. He worked as manager of the family-owned, Nick's Tavern until 1992. His Nick's Tavern bus trips for his patrons to Delta Downs and Gulf Greyhound Park were legendary, as were his Sunday cookouts and shuffleboard tournaments. He later held sales positions at Dream Homes, Onice Stone, Aquatic Pools and Christeve Oil Company, Inc.
Steve's hobbies were reading, fishing, following all Houston sports teams, his LSU Tigers and the Oklahoma Sooners. Steve was a voracious reader and his home was filled with books on numerous subjects. Steve was also an accomplished storyteller and was well-known and liked by all his walking neighbors in the Champion Forest XI subdivision.
Steve is survived by his loving mother, Beverly Cullins, his brother Chris L. Cullins and sister-in-law Janice and nephews, Joshua and Travis Cullins of Spring, TX. He was preceded in death by his father, Henry L. Cullins.
Steve was taken too soon, but he will always be in our memories and our hearts. We are comforted by the fact that Steve and Dad are together now, and are watching over us.
A celebration of his life will held on Saturday, December 30 at 2:00 pm at Beverly's residence in Spring. For more information, please contact the Klein Funeral Home for details.
