Steve worked for Contech in Wahoo for over 40 years. After retirement, Steve enjoyed mowing for elderly people in the community and helping with other odd jobs. Steve was a home body, but he enjoyed traveling with his wife Jeannette. Steve was content leading a simple life. He enjoyed running into friends and neighbors, always finding time to stop and talk even if just for his usual “few words”. Steve was the most honest, generous, hardworking gentle kind of guy together with that sincere “little smile”.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Jeannette Sabatka and parents, Adolph and Virginia Sabatka.
