Steven Love, 62, of Traverse City, passed away July 28, 2017 following an accident at his home. Steve was born Oct. 3, 1954 to the late L.G. and Joanne (Smith) in Lansing.
Steve was a man of the outdoors. He loved to fish, hunt and tend his hobby farm. He excelled at woodworking of all sorts and built his own vineyard. His passion was to turn his once run down property into the thriving oasis it became. He would be doing projects, all the while with Tucker, his trusty companion, by his side.
He enjoyed traveling and spent much time in Alaska visiting his son and family.
Steve would best be described as fun, witty, smart and adventurous. His presence will be missed by many.
Surviving Steve and missing him dearly are his partner and best friend, Janell Wheat; his sons, Christopher (Collen) and Nicholas (Alexandra); his brothers, Sam Love and Scott (Susan) Love; nieces and nephews, Samantha (Craig), Cassidy, Jacob, Omar, Sophie and Olivia; as well as grandchildren, Landis, Sawyer, Nadia and Sophia. He is also survived and missed by an amazing group of friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister-in-law, Sally.
A celebration of life will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017 at their farm on Old Mission Peninsula, his favorite place.
Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider donations to the Loveland Farm in care of the Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home, 305 Sixth St., Traverse City, MI 49684.
