Steven was the only child of Elaine Banman and will be truly missed by all. He was a jokester and lover of all fun things. A great athlete in most sports and he loved to paint.
We moved to Las Vegas in 1971, where he started school. He graduated from Valley High School in 1984. He married Patricia, the one true love of his life. They did a lot of traveling around the country.
He loved to ski and then he became an avid snowboarder. He loved his sports, especially the Steelers.
He worked as a route salesman for Sparklett's Water Co. for 25 years. Steven McCartney was born on November 13, 1966 and left us on November 9, 2013 at the age of 46.

"Thought of you today. It was a golden time of my life, all the friends I had then. And I look back on it often."
"I'm thinking about you today cousin Elaine, as you remember all the wonderful birthdays you spent with Steve!"
"Stopping by to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful son. I miss you so much. I know you are happy with the Father, and I will be with you again someday. I love you my dear sweet boy."
"I can't believe it's been a year, yet I know it's been a hard and long one for you. Because of Steve, we have become so close, and I am truly grateful for that. I was there with you when Steve started "Dancing In The Sky", I'm here for you now, and I always will be. You have a special place in my life and I love you cousin Elaine!"
"May the good Lord hold you in his arms and keep you in peace."
"Rest in perfect peace"
"I visit this site every day just to see your beautiful face again and I pray to God to take the pain and sorrow away. I pray for Him to heal my broken heart also. It may be a long time for me to see you again, but I know it will be only moments for you. Loving you now and always. Mom."
"Long time since ive seen steve, but I remember him like yesterday. Full of smiles and life. May God Bless him and take care of him..Steve you are missed.... John Curry"
"I just found out a very dear and very missed friend lost her son. A pain no mother or parent should have to face. I knew Steven through you Elaine and I knew your love for him. You will see him again in time. He is the star in your eyes and the joy in your heart. Sweet memories will stay forever. Light and love to you for your loss."
"Steve, I am heartbroken you have left us. I hope you knew how much I cared about you. I will continue to miss you my friend. I send you much love. Monica"
"There is no greater love than a mother for her child, and no greater pain than the loss of her child. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you Elaine and I am here for you anytime you need me. I love you!"
"Just found out. We haven't been in touch for years, but the years we were friends, were great. So many memories of summer BBQ's, SnowBox Derby's. Steve was always the funny one. I'm in the picture at the Horseshoe. LOL, I actually remember that night. To Elanine, I'm very sorry for your loss. Heaven must have needed another angel."
"I cried when you passed away. I still cry today.
Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.
God broke my heart to prove to me that he only takes the best.
This rose is for anyone in heaven that you loved and lost and for you to keep in your heart."
"Here is a story I heard one time at a memorial and I liked it so much that I wanted to leave it on here for all to see, it is called "And that is dying"
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says: "There, she is gone!"
Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear the load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says: "There, she is gone!" there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: "Here she comes!" And that is dying.
-Henry Van Dyke-"
"Steven, May you rest in the hands of angels.you will live in the hearts of your family and friends forever. To all who knew him, take a minute to read the 23rd Psalm, The Lord is my Shepherd and think of Steven.
Love, cousin Elaine"
"Have all the fun you can......
Love you forever, Grandpa"
"A Prayer for Healing
You invite all who are burdened to come to You.
Allow Your healing hand to heal me.
Touch my soul with Your compassion for others.
Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.
Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise.
Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example.
Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.
Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the joy of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your head and share with me,
God wanted me now. He set me free."
""Grief never ends, but it changes
It is a passage, not a place to stay
The sense of loss must give way
If we're to value the life that was lived"
