Family and friends tell WTVA Wade will be truly missed.
"We enjoyed fishing," said Jesse Gambrel, one of Wade's cousins. "Me and my dad and Steven use to fish all the time. We would go camping, hunting, all different activities."
"Steven would make you laugh and make you smile," said Kiefer Cummings, one of Wade's friends. "He used to pick on me about singing all the time. He would by like, 'Sing a note!"
"He was a jokester," said Leslie Austin, another friend of Wade's. "I remember when Steven first met my wife, of course we were dating at the time. He gave her a hard time, basically a vetting process, but then he said, 'You know what, Amy? You are alright."
