He was born January 6, 1962, in Texas County, Missouri, to Lounell Delcour and Jonnie Lee Ellis. He was one of five siblings. Steven was raised on a family farm in Graff, Missouri. He was always a happy fellow and had an infectious smile that could light up a room. He loved to arm wrestle and win. Steven loved his dogs on the farm and would sit with them for hours. After his parents passed away he went to live at the group home Green Acres, where he made very close friends. This would be his final home. Stevie and his mother adored each other, she was the light of his day; he will now be with her in Heaven. He will be missed by his family that is left behind.
