On October 11, 1971, the world was blessed with a loving son, brother and dear friend in Muskogee, Oklahoma, when Blanche M. Fields gave birth to a beautiful, baby boy. He was given the name Steven Joe Fields at Muskogee General Hospital and was the second oldest of four children in the family.

Also affectionately referred to as “Toby”, Steven graduate from Muskogee High School in May of 1994. He loved outdoors, which gave him the feeling of being free and allowed him to simply run. He also loved water, the relaxation of sitting in the swing and he loved music.

Even through life's challenges of special needs, Steven was an overcomer. He touched the heart of everyone he came in contact with through life. For 42 years, we were blessed to share the joy and happiness that he brought to each of our lives. He was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend and will be truly missed.
