Warner, Stephen “Steve” Michael.

Born October 2, 1946 in Mesa, Arizona. Died July 10, 2017 at Suncoast Hospice in Palm Harbor, Florida. He resided in Clearwater, Florida.

Steve was the very proud Grandpa of his four “wild men”; Aiden Warner, Caleb McGuire, Liam Warner, and Tommy-Nolan Smith.

The son of US Air Force Senior Master Sergeant, Boyd E.

The family extends our deepest gratitude to the nursing and patient care staff of the Witt 3 ward of Morton Plant Hospital and to the nurses, doctors, patient care techs, and social workers at Suncoast Hospice Care Center in Palm Harbor for the excellent care, empathy and support they provided to the Warner Family.
