Teresa and I offer our sincere condolences to Karen and family. I have many fond memories growing up just down the road from the Jacobs family at the Boxtown farm. We spent a fair amount of time together as kids down there.
May God give you comfort at this time.

Steve first came to A Wellness Within You three years ago for massage therapy. After a few sessions I could pretty much count on a preliminary discussion about what was going on in the world around us, his work and his family and he would always ask about my family. Steve was concerned about these things. We were closed this year for 10 weeks because of the pandemic. On his first visit back he left a little extra in compensation When I thanked him he said that he and his wife, Karen, feel that since they are blessed it is important to help others in kind. He pointed out that the extra was to treat my bride to a meal on our anniversary. We meet people all through our lives who affect us in different ways.I will remember Steve as a kind and decent guy.

To Steve's family in your time of sorrow our sincere prayers are being sent to you.
You will be missed, Steve.
In God's hands now - rest in peace.

God does not have washing machines in Heaven for you to unhook. So, rest in peace my friend, my brother-in-law.

Ryan and Krista, please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Father. It's hard to make sense of loved ones taken to soon. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
With Sympathy,

So sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I worked with him for 15 years at Erb and he was the most dependable and accurate
parts person I ever knew. When Steve handled it you knew it was done and done correct. He was also a very caring person and loved his family very much. He will be missed by many.
