Jul 12, 1938 – Jul 21, 2017
Steven Lock was born on July 12, 1938 in Canton, China. In 1950, he emigrated from China to the US. At the young age of 16, he had a strong desire to join the Marines but due to his young age he was unable to. As soon as he turned 18, he joined the Air Force as a firefighter until he was honorably discharged after 4 years of service.
In 1961, he met the "the girl I always remember," and married her the following year. Together they had two children, a son and a daughter.
Steven will be remembered for his kindness, generosity and most of all for his love of family. He was the anchor of his family and coordinated the emigration of 4 of his brothers and their families from China to the US. For all those who were blessed to know him, they will tell you that they will always remember his smile.
After a brief illness, Steven passed away peacefully on July 21, 2017. He is survived by his wife of almost 55 years, Joan, his son Brian, his daughter, Lynette, his grandchildren, Louis and Caitlyn, three brothers and countless nephews, nieces and in-laws.
He will be greatly missed but is now resting in peace in the arms of the Lord and the friends and family who preceded him in death.
