    Steve was a great softball coach when we were kids playing summer ball. His support was always appreciated, may he rest in peace. God bless the entire family.

    Loved being able to reconnect with him and Arlene when I started bringing my family to Saint Mark’s in 2018. They are wonderful people who have a great spiritual understanding and attitude. Loved Steve’s wit and Arlene’s extra sweet demeanor. I’m going to miss seeing them at mass. Many prayers and deepest sympathy to all the Spratt family, relatives and friends! 😇🙏🥰

    I have fond memories of stopping by the Spratt farm years ago to buy produce in the summer. Steve always came out to greet us with a smile and a cheerful hello. He often would give my young children a basket and let them go pick their own cherry tomatoes. My, now adult, children have fond memories of that also. I was so sad to get Audrey’s message informing me of her Dad’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Arlene, Audrey and the rest of the Spratt family. 🙏❤️
