A celebration of life to honor longtime resident Steve Cannata has been planned for November 2 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Robert Hootman Community Center on Running Springs School Road (off Hwy. 18). To everyone’s shock Steve died yesterday. He fought the great fight and although he endured a lot of pain he still had a smile and a welcoming attitude. Oh my gosh, will he be missed!
Steve was such an asset to our local mountain communities and he was respected and loved by so many people. He was one of those incredible people you could count on to help and help he did. He was funny, caring and I know his family and friends will miss him terribly. As a longtime member of the Arrowbear Lions Club Steve was active for many years and his death will leave a void in the organization and in the lives of his friends and family.
The family is requesting that friends take pictures of Steve so they can b e added to a memory wall. They are also asking his friends to “wear something with camouflage” on your attire because he loved nature so much.
A lunch will be catered by Blondie’s Restaurant in Arrowbear so please plan to attend and honor this man who was such a part of our communities.
