Steven W. Moore, 69, of Olmsted Township, went to be with the Lord on Saturday June 12, 2021. He was born in Cleveland on May 31, 1952 and graduated from Strongsville High School in 1970. He had been a resident of Olmsted Township for over 40 years. Steve met his wife Patti 50 years ago, and they were married for over 47 years. Right after getting married, Steve and Patti founded their own construction business now known as J. L. Moore in Columbia Station. He proudly served for 23 years in the Ohio Army National Guard as a Combat Engineer and he held several key positions over the years with his favorite being Company Commander. At his retirement from the National Guard he was an officer and had attained the rank of Major. He was also given the Meritorious Service Medal for dedicated service to his country. Steve was an active member of First Baptist Church in Elyria for many years where he served as a deacon and on the Building and Grounds Committee. Anyone who ever spent time with Steve knows that he was proud of his business and his service to his country and that he could tell stories, for hours, about either one! However, nothing made him happier than to spend every moment that he could with his wife, children and eight grandchildren. His constant storytelling and jokes will be missed by his family and friends, along with all the time that he spent with them camping, fishing, boating, building things, breaking things, and anything else that he could do with them to make them all happy. Steven W. Moore is survived by: his wife, Patti (nee Schroeder); his daughter, Heather Flatt (Ron Jr.) of Elyria; his son, Steve Moore (Stacy) of Grafton; eight grandchildren, Caleb, Tyler, Micah, Josh, Mckenna, Arrie, Aliyah and Ruby; his sister, Cheryl Mertz; and his brothers, Phil Moore and Brad Curcillo. He was preceded in death by; his mother, Martha “Jean” Curcillo (nee Brubach); and his father, Jack Moore. The family will receive friends on Thursday June 17, 2021 from 3 to 7pm at First Baptist Church of Elyria, 11400 LaGrange Road, Elyria. The funeral service will be Friday at 11am at the church with Pastor Dave Burman officiating. Burial will be at Chestnut Grove Cemetery in Olmsted Falls. Members from the Honor Guard of VFW Post #1079 in Elyria will conduct full military honors at the cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Hospice of the Western Reserve.
