Steve was 62 years old and was born January 31st, 1959 to his parents Robert and Colleen Belnap from Blackfoot, Idaho.
Shortly after his birth, his mother passed away. Bob became a single parent raising his son with help from his grandparents Newel and Vera Belnap from Wapello, Idaho and his aunts Joyce and Kay who reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. Steve was a vibrant, energetic little boy, ready to take the world on. He was consistently surrounded by very loving, encouraging and supportive grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Steve had a love for music. In his later teens, he formed a garage band for several years. He loved to play his drums and enjoyed vocalizing his talent as well. Steve was gifted with mechanics and carpentry taught to him by his father.
