Steve was born May 26th, 1952 to Francis and Dorothy (Demeny) Oliver. He will be remembered for his love of life. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially if it included an ice cold beer, fishing, hunting, listening to oldies while sitting on his deck. Steve especially loved having his family come together for a home cooked meal. Since early childhood Steve enjoyed watching his beloved Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packers. He adored his three wiener dogs, Iggy, Cubby and Wrigley. Steve had an unmatched zest for life and was the kind of guy everyone wanted as a friend.
Steve is survived by his wife Cindy Oliver and his three children, Michael Oliver and his significant other Sara Clark, Christy (Chris) Naniot and Julie (Chris) Michiels. He is further survived by his grandchildren, Hannah and Emma Oliver, Thalia and Nolan Naniot and Jake Wessley. His siblings Marie (Ray) Ferguson and Larry (Gayle) Oliver. Along with sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, aunts, cousins and many nieces and nephews.

To celebrate Steve and his love of sports, we encourage those attending the evening visitation to come wearing the colors of their favorite sports team; alternatively, purple is representative of pancreatic cancer.
