Steven P. Denman, 60, loving husband and father of two sons, succumbed to his battle with stage four lung cancer on October 13, 2019.
Steve was born on February 16, 1959 in Bloomington, IL to James and Pamela Denman. Steve grew up in Illinois and Texas before settling in Sierra Vista in 1963. On December 31, 1982 he married the love of his life Debra Ann Porretta. They raised two sons Steven and Michael. Steve started his 32-year career at SSVEC in 1986.
Steve had a passion for sports, particularly golf. After he found his passion for golf he could almost always be found at the course and insisted on many giving the game a try. However, he enjoyed playing, coaching, watching and discussing nearly any sport. He was known for his competitive spirit, loyalty, and love for his family and friends.
Steve was preceded in death by his mother, Pamela and his brother, Michael. He is survived by his wife, Debra, his sons Steven (Kimberly) and Michael (Katherine), his father James, his two sisters Pamela (Robert) Hegedus and Diane (Michael) Derfus, his four grandchildren Steven, Caleb, Shanel, and Scarlett, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
