We often laughed and asked, "How did you come up with that?" He adored his family and was so proud of his daughters and showed such unconditional love. Besides his family, Steve's passion in life was gardening. He enjoyed being outside, planting, pruning and maintaining his yard. When the girls were young, the family and neighborhood friends would congregate around the fruit trees and enjoy the fruits of his labor. He was preceded in death by his father, Thomas, and is survived by his mother, Patricia; his wife of 35 years, Lilly; daughters, Stephanie Gloede, and Sara Gloede Price and her husband, Jonathan; and his first adored grandson, Jonathan Steven Price.
