A Passionate Man

A Tribute from Matt Hatfield

Steve was my cousin but more like my 3rd big brother,  Steve took me to tons of Angel games in the 70’s as a little kid, would supply the neighborhood kids with countless free bowling passes at FV Bowl where he worked.  Countless free passes for batting practice at the Fun center where he worked, Steve helped coach my little leauge team,  wrote a newsletter and kept stats for my popwarner football team, he was “Hat the Stat”

Steve was a great athlete and put the P in passion,  carried a 200 average in bowling, you need a pulling guard to block a big Samoan in a padless tackle football game? thats Steve, who does a face plant trying to catch a ball on asphalt playing street football with 12 yr old kids? Steve,  Who dives head first into 3rd base in freindly game of coed softball?  Steve does.

Steve also taught me right from wrong when I was a kid, he told me it wasnt cool to sneak into the movies, but the right thing was to pay.  Steve was all about doing the right thing. Steve didnt drink alcohol but would be the designated driver for those who did.  Steve didnt have kids of his own, but he baby sat and was fatherly to many different familys that did have kids.

I miss you Steve.

In heaven there is no pain.

No pain of your parents divorce, no pain of not having a foot, no pain in the arse of having to take lithium, no more pain of being misunderstood, the pain is all gone.  Look forward to seeing you again someday.

Steve the Sportsman

Earlier this afternoon I received a phone call from Matthew Hatfield  in Orange County,Ca he told me the news about Steves passing away, I reminicsed 16 years ago when Steve and I were roommates in Fountain Valley,Ca.

I recalled Hat’s one of a kind personality, his unique laugh, and our freindship we developed instantly.  The only thing Steve lacked was an ego. I NEVER met a man that treated everyone like he or she was a best freind.  Steve never blew anyone off, he would do tasks for people, work odd jobs and even became Santa “Hat” Claus for the children of Orange County at Christmas.

Thanks for coming into my life Steve. I know I will never meet a better person. I’ll never forget you.

Here Steve is playing Volleyball at Huntington Central Park in Huntington Beach, California. It was a company party for Pacifica Hospital, where Shelley Hatfield worked.

The same day, Steve yuks it up with the clown.

Lemonade

Steve wasn’t  dealt the best hand in life,  but he made lemonade out of lemons.  He was by nature full of good cheer and enthusiasm.
