Steve was a kind, thoughtful, and generous (to a fault) man. He would give anyone the shirt off his back and was known as a generous gift giver. He had a good and unique sense of humor. As a boy, while hard of hearing, he learned to play the guitar and oil paint. He later became deaf. He was a voracious reader especially in the sciences and history. Steve found pleasure in gardening and learning about and attracting birds, especially hummingbirds. His dogs were a joy to him, especially Puppy and Major; and Lassie was his favorite. At the age of 18, Steve began his aircraft career at Cessna; followed by Boeing, and then Spirit. Steve also traveled to Kodiak, Alaska and worked on a salmon tender owned by his brother-in-law Bob Krueger; and sister, Marla. He retired from Spirit in February of this year.
Steve was preceded in death by his mother and father, Olive I Lawson, and Sylvester M. Mercer, his half-sister Judy Michael and half-brother Jerry Mercer. He is survived by his half-sisters Teresa Dvorak and Marla Krueger and her husband Bob, and close friends and cousin Sheri (Mercer) Olmstead and her husband Dale, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
