He was born on May 10, 1965 in Greencastle. After graduating from South Putnam High School in 1983, he joined the U.S. Army from October 1984 to October 1987 as a transportation specialist in the 197th Support Battalion.
He then relocated to Florida and worked for Hussmann Refrigeration. He soon started a successful independent contractor/handyman business with a close friend, Tony Zappia. He was most recently working for Colliers Arnold as a lead maintenance engineer.
Those who knew him remember Steve as the life of the party -- fun loving, carefree, witty and full of jokes. Steve was a loving son, brother, and uncle who would do anything for his friends and family, and will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his parents, Albert and Jo Ann McClure; his two brothers, Mike McClure and wife Linda of Fishers and Kenny McClure and wife Brenda of Land O' Lakes, Fla.; his three nieces, Holly, Whitney and Amy; his nephew Andrew; and his great-niece Adleigh.
Memorial Services will be held at 5 p.m. Friday at the North Lakeland Presbyterian Church. Donations can be made in lieu of flowers in Steve's name to your local Humane Society.
