This was just posted on FaceBook: It is with a heavy heart I am posting that Monday our family will be removing care and the ventilator from Steve. We are taking advice from several doctors on his team. Steve’s wishes were not be on a ventilator if there was no hope of recovery and breathing on his own. He’s been denied for a lung transplant at two other hospitals. Having previous cancer did not help. His lungs can not absorb enough oxygen to sustain him. Please pray for our family. We are heartbroken. Our last hope is a true Easter miracle. Please especially pray for my mother. No one should have to bury their child. I will post service information once we know what’s going on. I would personally like to thank everyone for the prayers and stories about my wonderful brother. Kelly Sue Mcfadden and the Smith family.

Steve was not scared to say what he was thinking and was a positive influence on Traditional Archery. Always enjoyed his postings on the Bear site on FB and some of our minor correspondence, but will always remember his absolutely beautiful four color strings he made under his net name of Bearbowman. His strings were works of art and I will treasure mine. He was a good friend of another who passed a few back, Steve Catt's, from West Virginia. Steve Smith was a real contributor to traditional archery, had a great attitude towards life, enjoyed hunting and fishing, was a good family man, and a fine person. May he Rest in Peace.

Prayers sent for comfort for his family.

RIP , I am sure there is a place at Fred’s campfire for you.

From: Bob Hildenbrand
Date: 06-Apr-21




Steve allowed me to be his friend for probably 25 years. We shared many campfires together. He taught me how to make a bowstring. When our son passed he came from W.Va. to the funeral. As Babblingbob said, he did not mix words. If you had a piece of crap string on your bow, he told you so.

One time we were at the Eastern Ohio Rendezvous, sitting around a fire and there was a young man whom we didn't know well sitting with us. I was wearing jeans and my prosthetic leg came loose. I just shook it out of my pant leg onto the ground. The kid could not get out of there fast enough and Steve literally fell off his chair laughing.

He was a heck of a good man, and did a great job of raising his son Ethan as a single parent. To his family, my condolences.

Steve...keep the wind in your face and carry a light load on your journey. Already missing you brother.

Steve was indeed a great guy. I bought a Bear C mag from him six years ago. I think about him whenever I shoot that sweet bow. Rest in peace Steve.

From: heydeerman Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member

Very sad. I had met him years ago and I believe he came to one of the last couple GORH’s. Rest in peace Steve. May his family and friends find joy in their memories of him.

From: RymanCat
Date: 06-Apr-21




Well Steve you know you are loved there's no dry eyes in the house.

This is the part of life that's hard and some of us don't come back from things like this but the Lord wants us to press on.

Nimrod if he's there must have needed some strings. Lord said to the rod, son he will be here soon pick out what ya want he can do it all. Make sure you hook him up with some of your spots.

Surely sad with this Kung flu!

Father please be with Steve's family while they morn and remember him. Father help us remember just how talented Steve was.

Amen

Seneca_Archer's embedded Photo



Gosh seems like I've known Steve since forever. He started showing up at the Seneca Archers shoots in the late '90's. I used to have several Bear bows and a couple Wings I bought from Steve, but they've all moved on.

I do still own two bows thanks to Steve. After starting to sell my Bears, I was at a shoot and Steve, knowing I was getting into Howatt's, said "Hey Jim did you see that short, white-glass lefty Howatt on e-Bay?" I said "Yeah, not sure what it is but I will probably throw a bid in." Steve replied "You better buy it, you'll NEVER see another one like it!" So I manually sniped it a day or two later, and he was right, I have never seen another Howatt "Speedy Diablo" hybrid (as I call it).

The other bow I have that Steve was responsible for was this osage selfbow in this picture made by the late Mike Churney, who was left-handed. After Mike passed, Steve got it from Mikes parents, shot this buck with it right-handed, then next year at our shoot convinced me I couldn't live without it LOL. I need to shoot a deer with it now for Steve.

I'm really gonna miss ya good buddy.
