For many years, Steve’s mission was reaching homeless vets and helping them and others to reach sobriety through AA and the gospel (thus his nickname). He was known for his one liners that were thought provoking and for the love he showed everyone unconditionally.
Steven celebrated 37 years of sobriety on 7/15/2021.
Steven is survived by one daughter, Kathlene Peyton, four nieces and one nephew and their families. He is preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Rosella Hinton, Lucille Williams, and Juanita Kilborn, as well as Steven’s “other brother”, Steve Greer.
