We are sad to hear of Steve's passing. We are sure that many, as well as we, will miss his humor. Our prayers are with you at this time.
Sincerest condolences to Winnie, Debbie, and the Ingram family. I didn't know Steve that well, as my contact with him as a youth was sparse. Still, he had a positive influence on everyone he came in contact with, and he had my utmost respect.
Winnie and family you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Steve was our first pastor when we moved to Brigham City 30 years ago. Like many we will miss his encouraging words and bright outlook on life.

I am so sorry for your loss. Pastor Steve was such a kind, generous, and funny man. He had a big influence on my life as my pastor growing up, and I am grateful to have been blessed with knowing him. God bless you through this difficult time with comfort.
