Steve was born on March 6, 1957, in Owosso, MI, the son of LeRoy and Maxine (Tunnicliff) Adams.
Steve was an outgoing, hard working, big talker who could make friends with just about anyone. He volunteered much of his spare time to be involved with his children and their sporting events. He enjoyed hosting many gatherings for the neighborhood kids at his house shooting hoops as well as other sports.
He was active in the lives of his children and grandchildren, always more than happy to do anything asked of him.
He would drop anything to help someone in need, especially his family. If he needed to sell anything to help his loved ones, he would.
In his younger years, he played on a men’s slow pitch softball league in Kalkaska. He also enjoyed playing beach volleyball, basketball, football and many water sports.
On March 27, 1987, in Kalkaska, he married Kelly Weighman who survives. Also surviving are 6 children, Steven and Sharon Fox, Seth (Destiny) Adams, Stephanie (Matthew) Nichols, Shantelle Navarre, Kayla Adams, 15 grandchildren, a step-brother Donald Kidd, and a step-sister Deborah Boal.
