Stephen John Lentz passed away on April 23rd, 2022 at the age of 65. Steve was born on March 22nd, 1957 to Eunice Mary (Baumgartner) Lentz and Kenneth Eugene Lentz in Parma, Ohio.
Steve enjoyed classic cars, genealogy, playing cards, helping his underprivileged feline friends, and falling asleep to baseball.
Steve's professional talent in the automotive industry is well recognized by his many friends, supervisors, customers, and colleagues, many of whom he would mentor.
He often shared his uniquely dry, sarcastic, dad-joke sense of humor with his many friends and family.
He had fulfilled his dream of traveling down U.S. Highway 66, and he knew more about the U.S. Presidents than anyone, reasonably, should.
He is survived by his fiancée Janeen, his father Kenneth, his sisters Kathy and Mary, his children Michelle, Ben, and Olivia, and his grandchildren Michael, Austin, and Amaris.
He is preceded in death by his mother Eunice, and his son Stephen.
In lieu of gifts or flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made at https://caws.org so that Steve may continue helping the kitties whom he loved.
To those saddened by his passing, Steve would want to remind you that, "It could be worse, it could be raining."
A private family celebration of life will take place at a later date for Stephen with his family. Online condolences may be shared at www.AshleyValleyFuneralHome.com.
