In the vibrant tapestry of life, certain individuals leave an indelible mark on those they touch. Steven Lynn Melton, known by many as Steve and affectionately called "Teedee" by his family, was one such person. Born on October 7, 1966, in San Antonio, Texas, he embraced life with an adventurous spirit and an unwavering resilience that inspired all who knew him. Steven’s life was a testament to his innate ability to find joy in the journey, despite the challenges he faced.\n\nIn his professional life, Steven was a man who wore many hats in his time . As a Commercial Electrician and a Handyman, he brought light into the homes of many, both literally and metaphorically. A Jack of all Trades and a master of none is still better than a master of one. Steve was always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. His resilience was evident in his dedication to his work, and it was this same resilience that made him a medaled BMX and motocross racing competitor. Steven's adventurous spirit was reflected in his love for hunting, fishing, kayaking, cooking, and tinkering. His compassion shone brightly through his involvement in Cowboy Action Shooting for various children's charities.\n\nFamily was Steven's greatest treasure. He held a deep, heartfelt compassion for his loved ones, and his inquiries about their well-being were always genuine. His family included his cherished fiancé, Cherie Lewis, whose love brought immense joy and happiness into Steven's life. Steven's family also extended to his siblings, Cherie Nugent, Dana Foster, Vincent Melton, Vickie Hardin, and Tonya Kinsey, his mother Lynne Melton, and his numerous nieces and nephews. His love for them was as vast as the Texas sky he so loved.\n\nAn Agent of Chaos, Steven believed in living life on his terms. He embodied the Outlaw State of Mind, walking the path less traveled with a sense of pride and a twinkle in his eye. His spirited nature and contagious laughter brought warmth and happiness to all those he encountered. He was a beacon of light in the entropy of life, spreading joy wherever he went.\n\nSteven is remembered with deep affection by his family: his mother, Lynne Melton; his sisters, Cherie Nugent, Dana Foster, Vickie Hardin, Tonya Kinsey; his brother, Vincent Melton; his fiancé, Cherie Lewis; his numerous nieces and nephews, and his many friends. He was preceded in death by his father, O.A. Melton; and his grandparents, Lynn and Willow Stephan.\n\nA Graveside Service will be held for Steven at 10:00am CDT on Tuesday, 26th September 2023 at the Roselawn Cemetery and Mausoleum, 1201 South Main Street, McAllen, Texas, 78501.
