Steve leaves behind his mother Annette Gannon, his adored wife of eight years Rhonda Gannon of Manteca; his children, Kristen Gannon, Austin Chapman and Stephanie Gannon. In addition Steve leaves behind siblings, Todd Gannon, Douglas Gannon (Robin) and Brenda Roberts (Jeff).
Steve was born and raised in Tracy, CA. He attended St. Bernard’s Catholic School and went on to graduate from Tracy High. During his school years he would play soccer and play high school football. Steve’s passion for music came at a young age. In high school he was the base player for his band named KONFIATOR. A true 80’s child; Steve loved his 80’s hair and music! He was always the life of any crowd.
Steve’s greatest accomplishment was being a dad, following his kids to cheer and baseball. Always cheering them on and was their biggest fan. He enjoyed spending time on the water, skiing and loved the ocean. He loved to BBQ for family and friends and religiously on Sundays even if it rained. He was a hard worker and loved his career as a plumber and appreciated all of his clients.
Steve brought nothing but smiles and happiness to everyone around him. He was a devoted father and amazing husband. He loved his family and friends dearly.
Steve took his cancer with grace and dignity. He battled with all his strength. He never let that define him. Steve will be remembered for his valiant fight, his unconditional love and his faith in God.
He will deeply be missed.
