Steve Michael Balerio

 His oldest brother, Lawrence Raymond Balerio preceded him in death.  Steve was married for 12 years to Crystalinn Garcia.  He loved life and enjoyed spending time with his eight grandchildren, whom he absolutely adored.  Steve also loved spending time with his son, Joshua and his friends, at the river fishing and listening to his music.  Many people would say Steve was a wonderful man with a big heart and he would have given the shirt off his back.  And he did, many times in his life.  Steve will be greatly missed by all the people he touched in his life.  We Love You, Dad!  Steve is survived by his father, Raymond Frank Balerio; his mother, Marie Lilian Balerio; three loving children; Sandra Kay Garcia and husband Brian, Sarah Marie Balerio and Joshua Michael Balerio and wife Laura; three brothers, Julian (Josephine) Balerio, Don (Eva) Balerio, and Gerald Balerio; two sisters, Pauline (Fred) Gallegos and Diane (Phill) Raimer; three grandsons; five granddaughters; and several nieces and nephews.  A visitation will be held Sunday, January 13, 2008 from 5 – 7:00 p.m. with the Rosary at 7:00 p.m. at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary.  The funeral mass will be Monday at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
