of Amherst, NY passed suddenly June
20, 2023; Beloved husband of Amy
(nee Confer); devoted father of Taylor,
Christopher and Jackson; loving son of
Robert and Karen (nee Cooke) Smith;
cherished brother of Jason (Leigh)
Smith and Lauren (Kendal) Brown; fond
grandson of the late Clifford and Lorna
(nee Cornell) Cooke; also survived by
many dear nieces, nephews, aunts,
uncles, cousins and friends. Steve was
a successful business owner of Steve’s
Landscaping Service, which he built
from the ground up. Starting with a small
trailer and his own lawnmower and
servicing only a handful of customers.
He quickly transformed his business
to a full-time career with nearly 200
clients. Sports were Steve’s passion.
He was a diehard Bills fan from birth. A
talented athlete, he excelled at multiple
sports and continues to hold the indoor
shot-put record at Kenmore East High
School. Football, being his favorite
sport, he played even after high school
at the University of Rochester and on
the Kenmore East Alumni Football
Team. He was often spotted on the
field helping his sons’ flag football
teams. While sports played a key role
in Steve’s life, his true love was his
family. His children were his world,
and he was devoted to Amy. His family
was his top priority, often putting their
needs before his own. Family time at
Skyline Campground was his favorite.
The family has enjoyed camping there
since 2017. Activities he enjoyed were
teaching the kids to fish, building and
enjoying a campfire and dancing with
the family to Crash Cadillac, live. Steve
will always be remembered as the life of
the party and a big kid at heart, beloved
by everyone. His witty sense of humor
brought people together, he just made
everything more fun with his heart
of gold. Family and friends may visit
