   Stephen was a 1984 graduate of Quincy High School.

He enjoyed when Mary, Susie or Randy would take him to McDonald's for a Big Mac and french fries and he looked forward to Sundays because he knew Mary or his uncle Larry would pick him up and treat him with a special treat.

   Stephen was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Scot "Scottie" Harre.

   Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 2:00 in Madison Park Christian Church by Pastor Chuck Sackett.  Burial will be in Greenmount Cemetery.

Stephen was always one of my favorite people to visit with, when I went over to Quincy Terrace. He was so patient and, even in his last days, still had a smile for me. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mary and family, I wish you God's comfort now and in the coming days. You will miss Steve; don't mourn his passing, but count your blessings that you have been blessed by his presence. You have many good memories--share them. Also, remember to visit with Steve's friends--they will also be missing him and will need your love and comfort. May God bless and direct your family.

Mary, Susie, Randy,
I want to express my condolences to all of you. I'm one of nurses that took care of Stephen a few of the times he was on IMC and especially towards the end. I so enjoyed taking care of him and seeing his big smile. He was such a sweet gentleman. And you can tell he was loved by many, family and friends. I loved seeing when his friends from Quincy Terrace came go visit him when he was in the hospital. I know it is a hard, rough time right now, but please reminder he is not suffering anymore and that he is in a good place with God at his side. Cherish the memories you have with him and keep those close to your heart. God Bless

Mary, Uncle Larry and family. My condolences are to you and all of the family as I was honored to have been able to take care of steve and even his brother Scottie too as they both were such sweet boys. He will be missed by so many people and I especially remember when we were at the doctors or someplace Steve really enjoyed going as he had such a cute little laugh and I could seem to always bring that little laugh out in him when he was down or didn't feel up to par. he loved to go for rides with us on Sundays as we had so much fun listening to music in the van and to go out and look at Christmas lights or just go to the deer park to feed the deer on Sunday afternoons. I will ALWAYS CHERRISH those special moments with Steve. Those memories can never be taken away as also when he went with his family and those good memories you all have too. Steve is not suffering now and in GODS hands where he will be with his whole family now. God Bless you all and Im so glad I got to be a part of Steve's life. I will miss him dearly. Sincerely J.R. Moran
