Steve attended Roswell Schools and graduated in 1973, then attended NM State University and University of New Mexico. He adored his children and grandchildren, and he entertained them all to their great delight. Steve was a member of Christ’s Church. He loved the Lord and spoke His word to anyone, every chance he had. Steve was a longtime member of Roswell Rotary and served as Sergeant at Arms, which allowed him to make many wonderful friendships.
Steve owned and operated DeNio Cleaners for 29 years. He sold DeNio Cleaners in 2010 and joined his wife Connie in the real estate business at RE/MAX of Roswell. They started CSD Property Management at that time, which Steve managed and enjoyed very much. He will be missed by many.
