He was preceded in death by his parents, Pat & Hilda Conners.
Steven graduated from Capital Hill High School in Oklahoma City in 1979 and went on to attend Oklahoma State University. He was a very devoted and avid fan of any sport played by the Pokes but especially football, basketball and golf. He loved to play golf and shoot pool whenever he had the opportunity.
Steve was in the landscape business. He loved to make his clients’ properties look their best in all seasons to make his clients proud.
The family would like to acknowledge, his right-hand man and loyal friend Joao “John” Sampaio for all of his hard work to keep Steven’s business going as long as he could when Steven started having health issues. Most of all, we would like to thank him for his very caring and dedicated friendship.
The family would also like to thank his dear friend Pat Bates for his many years of friendship with Steve and all the help he provided to him over the years.
Steven loved dogs and horses. Anyone who has seen Steven in the last few years, will remember his dog, Glen. Glen was his faithful companion and accompanied him everywhere he went.
Over the last 7 months, as his health declined, Steve suffered from a severe and very rapidly progressing onset of dementia. He was always very grateful to his friends that reached out to him even when he could not respond.
