It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have to inform you that our dad, Steve Rhoades passed away on Thursday, January 4th. He suffered a stroke and had to undergo immediate emergency surgery. Unfortunately, he never regained consciousness post surgery. We, along with the rest of our family were able to be by his side when he passed.
A Celebration of Steve’s life will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 3:00 p.m., at the Ben Avery Pistol Silhouette Range, 4044 West Black Canyon Boulevard, Phoenix, AZ, 85086. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Steve to the charity of their choice in lieu of flowers.
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please go on bravely with a gallant smile
And for my sake and in my name,
Live on and do all things the same.
Spend not your life in empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.
