Steven J. Willis

May 22, 1980 — April 11, 2024


Struthers - Steven J. Willis, 43, passed away unexpectedly on April 11, 2024 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown.

Born May 22, 1980 in Youngstown, a son of Willard and Sandra (Berstling) Willis
Steve was an extremely hardworking, huge hearted, and gentle man. His skill set was unmatched in the concrete and construction field that he spent his life perfecting. Family was everything to Steve. He fiercely protected, cared for and was always there for family and loved ones in a way only Steve could, especially for his mother and sister.  With Heather, he enjoyed road trips, her daughters’ track meets, and just about anything they could do together. He truly was an incredible male role model. Steve's allegiance to the Detroit Lions never wavered even during the worst of seasons, he loved paranormal and documentary YouTube videos and always a good video game. During his lifetime he made a huge impact on those around him and made this world a much brighter place. 
He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his parents: sister Stacey L. Willis of Canfield, his nephew and Godson, Joseph M. Rzona Jr.;  his niece Lucia G. Fuda, his “number one little lady”; his partner, Heather Clark of Youngstown; and her daughters Haley and Lilly Trolio.
