He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Holly Elizabeth Lakey; sons, Jacob Ryan Morse and Steven Michael Lakey; daughters, Courtney Lynn Baca, Stacey Lynn Lakey, and Casey Jo Lakey; father, Steven Trent Lakey; sisters, Jean Catherine Manning and April Rae Merriman; beloved pets, Muckaluck, Cocheese, and Tucker. Steven was preceeded in death by his mother, Pegi Alberta Lakey.
Steve loved his family and his friends unconditionally. He was fun and always funny. He loved the outdoors, logging, hiking, hunting, fishing, or anything that kept him in natures grace.
Steve worked as a logger all of his life. He always felt blessed that he got to see the sun rise every morning. It is impossible to describe the many wonderful memories that he gave us all in such a short time.
Those of you who knew him and loved him are welcome to join in a celebration of his life that will be held July 3 at the Lakeside Resort at 3 p.m.
Steve will be forever missed and forever loved. This is not goodbye, this is thank you. Thank you for all of your love, patience, and joy.
