Steven William Rough

He was born on Oct. 31, 1989 in Saint Joseph, Michigan to William Charles and Cindy Kay (Webber) Rough. He was graduated from Buchanan High School, where he had earned varsity letters in soccer and track. He has been previously employed at the Judith Racht Gallery in Harbert, Michigan and was currently employed at the Home Acres Building Supply Company in South Bend, Indiana.

Steven continued his athletic activities in area softball leagues, but found his greatest pleasure in practicing his fine art skills, especially drawing. He always had a smile, which naturally drew new friends to him. His greatest joy was his son, Logan.

White, Sheri (Michael) Colburn, and Pam (Donald) Priest, and many cousins.

He was preceded in death by grandparents Harley “Bunk” and Martha Ann (Shelton) Webber; and great-grandparents including Ethan and Rose Shelton.

The funeral for Steven Rough will be at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 19, 2016 at the Berrien Center Bible Church with Pastor Bill Zebell of the church officiating.

The family will receive relatives and friends on Thursday at the Halbritter Funeral Home in Niles from 5 until 8 p.m. Contributions in memory of Steven may be made to the Logan Rough Trust Fund.
