Over the years, he had enjoyed gardening, fishing trips to Minnesota and especially spending time with his beloved family. Steve was a proud and dedicated resident of Bettendorf and had most recently served as the Fourth of July parade marshal in 2009. His compassion and his many years of civil and community service will be remembered by many.
Those left to honor his memory include his daughter and son-in-law, Janice and Darrell Ridgeway of Bettendorf; his son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Mary Tometich of Bettendorf; his grandchildren, Carie (Mike) Rohm, Stephanie (Chad) Gainey and Josh Kroeger; his great-grandchildren, Cassidy Ridgeway, Brooklyn Rohm and Taylor Gainey; and his sisters, Theresa (James) Weber of Laguna La Paz, Calif. and Eva Reum of San Angelo, Texas.
In addition to his wife, Barbara, Steve was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Marie Frye; and his brother, August Tometich.
