An avid sports fan, he enjoyed cheering for the Negaunee Miners, Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans, Minnesota Vikings and Miami Dolphins. “Uncle Steve” loved his family and always remembered birthdays, including his nephews and great-nephews.
Surviving are his mother, Shirley; brother, Mark Hemmila of Negaunee Township; sister, Susan (John) Savolainen of Middleburg, FL; three nephews: Pete (Alicia Jenner) Savolainen and their sons, Olin and Sami, and Tom and Greg Savolainen; and his beloved dog, Buster.
