Steven Howard Aldrich was born on October 8, 1954, at Urania, LA to the union of his parents, Lecil Henry Aldrich and Odelle Sellers Aldrich. He passed from this life on December 27, 2021, at his residence in Olla following a battle with cancer. Steve loved the outdoors, drinking coffee on his porch, working in the yard, hunting, fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. He was a social butterfly and never met a stranger. He was known for his kindness and generosity that left a mark on the many people he left behind. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother-in-law, Larry Ganey; and a niece, Missi Harrison.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughters: Miranda Miller (John) and Stevie Aldrich; his son, Jon Meredith, four step-children: Carol Mott, Dwayne Mott (Heather), Betty Cole (Ronnie) and Tamara Tate (Jarrett), his sister, Delores Ganey; and numerous grandchildren.
Serving as pallbearers will be John Miller, Billy Lucas, Todd Ganey, Josh Harrison, Michael May, and Josh McNaughton. Honorary pallbearers include Preston Rosier, Braydon McNaughton, and Cameron Hawthorne.
