Steve was a very good friend. Many great memories growing up with this guy. Fishing on the Cottonwood, playing sports , FFA, and yes a little mischief now and again. You were a solid friend to me Steve and I know I'll see you again. God Bless you and your family.

Many wonderful memories of Steve coming to our gun shop and shooting trap together at the Florence Gun Club. He was funny and lighthearted and always had a smile and a wink for everyone. My thoughts and prayers for the family in this time of loss. Godpseed.

May all of Steve's family and other loved ones accept my sincere condolences for your loss of such a great man. Steve was loved by all who knew him.

In my opinion he was always an inspiration to us all. I don't believe he ever knew a stranger, because he always demonstrated the utmost respect to all.

Thank you Steve Hett, you will never be forgotten. God Bless!!!

Steve will be greatly missed. Although I only knew him for a short time It was clear he had numerous admirable qualities. I found him to be helpful and generous, always willing to share a story especially when it came to his love of rocks and deer hunting. I consider it a privilege to have known him.
My condolences to Barb and the entire family.

Steve was well liked and respected by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He had great character and a big heart. I will always remember the fun times shared as classmates and the great conversations shared as adults. He will be missed.
