He passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Belfa'tr on July 7, 2014. Steve leaves on earth his morn Irene Slagle-Ormiston (Wayne); his son Jim Slagle (Kelly); his daughter Melissa Lewis (John); his sisters Jo'ni Slagle and Jill Sullivan (Dan); his nieces Amanda Sullivan, Morgan Bradley (Ed) and Shay Sullivan; his two grandchildren Kate and Jackson Lewis and his former wife Nettie Trevino. He joins his dad Elmer and best friends Llyle and Caldwell in heaven. Steve graduated from North Mason High School in 1970 and furthered his education at Central Washington University. He was employed at PSNS as a nuclear pipefitter. He was hardworking, smart and resourceful. In high school he worked on his Uncle Al's Christmas tree farm and at Hallmark. He bought his first home at age 17. Throughout his life he spent immeasurable time finding the 'perfect' Hallmark card and writing endearing messages to his loved ones. His penmanship was impeccable block letter, similar to his dad's. Steve was a passionate man with a magnetic personality and a heart of gold. He truly appreciated the treasures in life--his grandchildren, a great story, amber colored agates, cracked crab and sherbet sunsets on the Hood Canal. He found serenity outdoors. He relished the fall and its many wonders. He enjoyed long drives through the back roads of the woods, fishing beaver ponds and picking wild mushrooms. He loved the challenge of finding and picking enough wild blackberries to make a pie for the 4th of July. He was drawn to the salt water and loved spending time on the Hood Canal hunting for agates, kicking back on the beach, waterskiing and boating on glassy water. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to the Hood Canal Land Trust. An online memorial can be seen at www.lewischapel.com We love you, old man!
