Stephen Joseph Heuft, 76, of Traverse City, passed away at his home on Dec. 26, 2017. Steve was born on Oct. 27, 1941 in Detroit to the late Joseph Stephen and Lillian (Lescoe) Heuft.
On Nov. 21, 1965 Steve married the love of his life, Suzanne Schumer, in Detroit.
Steve graduated from Arrow Technautics High School in Detroit.
Steve started working at Walmart as a greeter. He quickly became the "ambassador" and was well loved by his co-workers and the regulars.
He made Christmas arrangements for all of his friends and was such a thoughtful man. Steve was also a collector of many things. He loved a good bargain, and if you needed anything there was a good chance Steve had it, and probably in his car. He had a wonderful sense of humor and he will be greatly missed.
Steve is survived by his wife of 52 years, Suzanne; sons, Rick (Dawn) Heuft and Alan Heuft; grandson, Josh (Breanna) Heuft; great-granddaughter, Riley; sister, May Zguris; niece, Whitney Allen; nephew, Christopher (Teresa) Zguris; and cousins, John (Susan) Heuft and Dale (Pat) McClarney.
The memorial service celebrating Steve's life will be held on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, at 11 a.m., with visitation held one hour prior, at Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home.
