He is also survived by his mother, many dear friends, aunts, cousins, in-laws, nieces and nephews.
Steve was born in Lee County to Mr. and Mrs. Harold Altom and in addition to his father; he was preceded in death by his loving paternal grandparents, Naub and Jetty Altom and his loving maternal grandparents, Mel and Irene Lauderdale.
He was employed by CED of Tupelo for 25 years in outside sales, taking much pride in his job and working for this company also making many friends and acquaintances along the way.
Steve was a powerful hunter, with a passion for deer and turkey. He was taught to hunt deer at the early age of 8 by his loving Paw Altom. He shared many adventures they had together and also shared many stories of his love for his Maw Jetty. He also had many fond memories at his Paw Mel and Maw Irene's house with his cousins. He shared his time and hunting skills with his wife, Sheree, his daughter Jessica, Grandson Hayden and had just begun hunting with his Granddaughter Zoey. He was a great teacher!
Steve was also a talented fisherman, with many stories to tell about his adventures with his fishing buddies.
Steve will be greatly missed!
