Steve was born January 30, 1960 in Lawton, Oklahoma, the son of Delbert and Maxine (Salts) Pool. He married Sheila Shoemaker, May 10, 1986 in Birmingham.
Steve worked for Dexter Foundry for 15 years. He enjoyed watching football and baseball. Family was at the center of Steve’s life and he cherished his time with them. Over the past several years it became more and more difficult for him to move on his own. He never complained. Instead, he vehemently enjoyed every minute with his loved ones.
Those left to honor his memory include his wife, Sheila; son Danen (Daniell McEvoy) Pool of Ames; granddaughter, Layla Pool; father, Delbert Pool of Texas; sister, Sue Pool; and siblings Audra, Roger, and Joel.
