The Struhall’s and my family go back many years. We have both lost family in 2019. Steven was the latest and my memories go back to always running into Steven in my youth in Barton Hills, and years later, hunting in west Texas with both our families. I’ll miss you buddy, always enjoyed our conversations and sitting around and chatting when we were hunting. Happy that you are with ur family now.
Have known Steven for many years and he always had a smile in his face and a twinkle in his eye. Please accept my sincere condolences.
I am beyond shocked to read the obit today on Steven--while I did not know him, I knew Garrie briefly but of course knew their grandfather, Dr. Struhall, and grandmother forever. Cannot believe that both the brothers died the same year, and both of cancer. I am so sorry. Marshall E. Kuykendall
I just wanted to express my sorrow after hearing the news oh Steve’s passing. Steve was always a jovial friendly guy who was a frequent customer at my business Harrell’s Supply. Over the years we shared many stories about hunting, crawfish boils,and many other items of mutual interest. It was always a pleasure to visit with him and Steve always had the time to do so, at least he made the time. He would gift my employee’s with smoked turkeys at Thanksgiving. While we had many great customers at my business, there are not many I and my employees can call “Friend”. My prayers and hope that God will bless the family with comfort during this time of loss.
