In Memory

Steve Vollbrecht

Stephen Dean Vollbrecht passed away from a brave but short battle with cancer on March 1, 2002.  He attained the rank of CMS (E9) in the USAF and served for over 29 years before receiving a medical retirement in 2000.  He leaves behind his loving wife of 32 years, Doreen K. and two wonderful sons, Stephen and David.  In addition, he left his father, Herbert Lee Vollbrecht; sister, Sharon Lynn Vollbrecht and family; and brother, Frank and family.  He was predeceased by his mother, Jean Marie Vollbrecht. 

He prided himself in his ability to be honest, brutally at times.  He was loved by all... family, friends, and co-workers.  He will always be remembered.

I always remember that Steve was one of the nicest people in school. He was funny and had lots of friends. His romance with Doreen was truly something to behold. What an amazing love story. He was truly one of the good guys.

My darling husband, the father of my children and my best friend... I will live always with the memories of our life together... it has never been the same since you left my life. I will love you always.

We buried another classmate today, Steve, and it has made me question "why".  Why did you leave so soon?  Why Zora, Why Brenda, Why all the others?  I know that it is said that God puts us all here for a purpose and when we have completed our task we will be called back to Him.  You were always so good at that,  No task was too great for you.  I try to live each day to help all those I can, but I miss you so very much.  What is my task?  It would be so much easier if you were here with me.  I know that no one said it would be easy... but we were such a wonderful team.  The memories I have keep me sane.  Your boys are grown into fine young men and I know that you watch over them and their families.  We talk about you often and will never let the grandkids forget the Grandpa they never got to meet.  Connor has reunited with Dave and Evan is so smart.  Those are the only two that actually got to meet your worldly self.  Ava, Maia and Dylan ask questions about you and we get out the photo albums your boys start the boyhood stories.

Today was your birthday, and I miss you so very much... I know that you can't read this, but it feels so darned good to put it into words.  Happy Birthday.... party with the angels.
