He was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd Speights and Betty Jean Black, his uncle Billy Rae Canipe, and his father-in-law, F.M. Cooper. He also was preceded in death by dear friends and other special family members.

A Vietnam Veteran USAF, Steve was so proud of his country and enjoyed connecting with other veterans. In 1997, later in his life, he received a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Marketing at The University of Texas at San Antonio. He met an employee at UTSA who he married in 1998. As a couple they followed their goal, "Grow Old Along With Me The Best Is Yet To Be". Loved long road trips and managed to get to all 50 states. Traveled here and there, fishing, visiting friends throughout the country and always spending time or checking with family. Began cruising to other locations and enjoying casinos on land and sea. Steve struggled with heart disease, vascular disease, lymphoma, macular degeneration and had surgical procedures as well in the last 20 years. He fought each one as best he could until July 1. A good man who had a good life, loved an audience and shared wonderful stories and jokes with family, friends and strangers, too.

Special thanks to all the doctors, nurses and staff at The MARC, Hanger Clinic, CTRC, and University Hospital who helped Steve live a longer life.

Condolence & Memory Journal

My heart aches for Anne, but Steve is at peace and his no longer does. Their life together was medically challenging at times, but joyful for the many great times they shared, especially the fun travel adventures. Steve was a good man and loving husband. I will miss my "air kisses" to my friend.

It's hard to write about my brother-in-law Steve and his passing. Steve was a terrific brother-in-law. He was always kind to Marie and me, always ready with a joke or a story, and truly always quick to share what he had. We fished together, I snagged his favorite lure on a dock, we ate beautiful barbecue he worked through the night to prepare, and he and Anne hosted many, many delightful weekends at the coast in Rockport. He would pilot his boat around the neighborhood with easy mastery and give us the scoop on all the famous neighbors. And of course to hear him tell it, he was also world class at repairing jet aircraft in 30-below weather. He was a great and generous soul, and I am glad to have known him, though not for nearly long enough. I will, everyone will, miss Steve greatly.
