Stephen Richard Legge, 58, passed away on September 23, 2020 at Springfield Regional Medical Center due to complications from Covid-19. Steve was welcomed into this world on June 16, 1962 in Springfield, Ohio by his father and mother, William R. & Marcia I Legge. As a little boy, Steve had a goal of serving in the military. Steps toward his goal began in his early teens with his service in the Civil Air Patrol. He then went on to join the U.S. Air Force & Air Force Reserve, in which he faithfully served his country for 12 years in many different capacities, including as an instructor and specialist in the fields of Disaster Preparedness & Chemical Warfare during Operation Desert Storm, and earning recognition for his contributions to ELF ONE COMMAND missions in Saudi Arabia. Survivors include his devoted mother Marcia, brother John Legge, sisters Lisa (Eric) Fain and Stephanie Yowler. Nephews, Ted (Ashley) Yowler, Piercen, Ethan & Trenton Yowler. Nieces Samantha (Nathan) Rofe, Crystal Bridges, and Corrina Fain, and several great nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved very much. He is also survived by his lifelong friends, Daryl & Kim Steen and Kaye Emans, who made his life much brighter just by their mere presence as they understood his humor and kept him laughing, even during the toughest of times. A casual and relaxed memorial service has been planned for October 11th, 2020 during the hours 1:00pm – 4:00pm at the Shrine Club, 471 Shrine Road, Springfield, Ohio 45504.
