Steve Wayne Nolan, 38, was the first born son to Jerry Wayne Nolan and Susan Kay Kelley Nolan on January 14, 1975, in Longview, Washington. He fought a short but brave battle with Lung Cancer, grew his wings and went to be with the Lord on June 16, 2013, in Olympia, Washington.
A memorial is set for 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, 2013, at Central Park Neighborhood Church, located at 7010 Bryrwood, off Hwy 12, in Aberdeen. Pastor Steve Gaffney will officiate.
Steve was raised during his formative years in Kelso, Washington by his mother and later moved to Grays Harbor to be raised by his father along with his two younger brothers, Matthew and Chad. They moved to the Wishkah area in Hoquiam in 1989 where Steve played football. He graduated from Wishkah School in 1993. After graduation Steve moved back to the Longview area where he met and married Anna Durns in 2008. He and Anna had three children together, Nathaniel, age 5, Amelia, age 4 and Preston, age 2. They now reside with Steve’s youngest brother, Chad and his wife, Katie.
Steve had most recently completed a Truck Driver Training Program and had accomplished getting his CDL. Unfortunately, he was never able to take advantage of his hard earned training due to his unexpected diagnosis. During his training he hauled goods and commodities to nearly every state.
Steve enjoyed being a Dad. In fact, his whole life centered on being with his children and doing activities with them. Steve was a quiet and reserved man with a kind and gentle spirit.
In addition to his three children, Nathaniel, Amelia and Preston; Steve is survived by his parents, Jerry Wayne Nolan of Hoquiam and Susan Kay Kelley of Kelso; his two brothers, Matthew James of Kelso and Chad Alan of Olympia; paternal grandparents, Ivan and Viola Nolan of Central Park; Aunt Linda Bodine of Olympia; Aunt Nancy and Uncle Roy of Kelso; cousins, Dana Connally of Olympia, Lee Ann, Eric, Terri and Tom all of Cowlitz County, and Jennifer, Wendy and Christina, all of Grays Harbor; along with a number of second cousins who loved him dearly.
Preceding Steve in death are his maternal grandparents, Alfred and Delores Kelley; and uncles, Randy and Larry Nolan.
All donations will be placed in trust accounts for Steve’s children.
