Born Aug. 21, 1938, in Sacramento, Calif., to Jim and Genevieve Woodward, Steve passed away peacefully surrounded by family on June 27, 2013. He grew up in Sacramento, graduating from El Camino High School in 1956, where he played golf and ran track and field.
Steve married his loving wife of 44 years, Beverly, in 1968 in Sacramento. They moved their family to Cameron Park in 1974, joining Cameron Park Country Club the following year. He spent much of the next 38 years enjoying golfing in the Bad Boy group, playing cards, watching professional football and indulging in the occasional Coors light. He will always be remembered for the golf tournament named in his honor, the Suedie Scramble.
Steve is finally at peace, hopefully playing golf, enjoying a Coors light and once again spending time with his granddog, Buddy. He is survived by his wife, Beverly; his daughter, Stacey; his son, Damon; his step-sisters, Denise and Leslie; his step-mother, Helen; many cousins; and his dog, Rocky.
Steve was very passionate and one of the causes that was most important to him was taking care of animals. He supported the SPCA and many other animal shelters and organizations dedicated to the protection and well being of animals in need. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to your local SPCA.
A funeral mass will be held at 10:30 a.m., on Friday, July 5, at Holy Trinity Church, 3111 Tierra de Dios Drive in El Dorado Hills, CA 95762. A reception will follow at Cameron Park Country Club, 3201 Royal Drive in Cameron Park, CA 95682, from 12 to 2 p.m.
