Steven Steele

Steven Wayne Steele, age 49, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at Frankfort Regional Medical Center.

Steven was born in Hazard, Ky., on July 22, 1964. He was the son of the late Marcus Steele, Jr. and Reva June Mosgrove Steele. His brother, David Steele, passed away January 7, 2005. 

Steven worked as a customer courtesy clerk at the Brighton Park Kroger store. He began his employment with the store May 7, 1998, missing only two days of work in all this time.  Always with a smile on his face, Steven was very generous, willing to help anyone and daily would tell his co-workers they were doing a good job and he appreciated them. Steven never complained and never asked for anything for himself. He loved talking to his customers. He had a great memory — recognizing his customers by name and recalling a personal connection with those he greeted.

A memorial gathering and brief service to honor Steven will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 10, 2014, at Kroger East. Steven’s co-workers invite all customers and friends to come share fond memories of Steven.    

Arrangements are under the direction of Harrod Brothers Funeral Home. Condolences may be shared via the online guestbook at

  • I loved steven so much. I knew him from many years back him and his brother. I am so sad of his passing. I always looked forward to talking to him at kroger east. He always remembered me too. He was really a great guy with a big smile and was sooooo pleasant to me. I remembered 1 day I gave him a ride walking home from work. he loved his brother and he missed his brother greatly. they are together now in peace. so young so gone so fast, but blessed. he will be greatly missed by all.

  • Steven was always a wonderful, helpful Kroger associate.  I was so sad to hear of his passing.

    There are few with his work ethic and attitude in the world of retail.  I hope his goodwill has set an example for all of his co-workers at Kroger.

    God bless and rest in peace Steven.
