STEVEN J OXNEVAD 1958 - 2009

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. -from The Wonder Years television show

    Steven John Oxnevad was the greatest father anyone could have asked for. He was not only a great dad but he was an all around AMAZING person! He was the type of person that would give the shirt off his back for someone who in need, the type of person that do anything to solve a conflict. He was also one of the smartest most knowledgeable person i knew. He was also one of the funniest people i knew. every single day he would make me laugh harder then then the day before. he treated everyday like it would be his last and that was a good thing because his came so suddenly. there is aot that is going to be going on in these upcoming months that he is going to physically miss but he will spiritually and emotionally be there. Daddie you were the greatest man i knew and nothing will ever change that. no amount of word can express how much you will be missed!! i love you so much daddie! you will always be with me!!

  5. Many people will miss you Steve. I bowled with Steve for a long time on Thursday nights at Evergreen Lanes, the last several seasons as one of Steve's teammates. He will be missed by many. He had a great sense of humor and was a fierce competitor on the lanes. I will always remember him as one of the nicest folks I've met.

  6. Eric and Jane, Im am shocked and saddened by Steve's sudden passing. I have alot of wonderful memories of me Eric and Steve doing all kinds of fun and crazy things. He was a very good man and father and may he rest in peace. Jeff Green and family (253) 230 2022

  7. Imagine he'd had it will living with Kathi. Not an easy thing! Too much stress over a long horrid marriage.
