It is with heavy hearts that the family of Steven Eugene Barclay announces he went home to be with the Lord on Saturday January 30, 2021 at the age of 58.
Steve was born August 22, 1962 and has been a beloved member of the Ft.Lupton community for over 50 years. He was a loving caring brother to Susan. They shared many wonderful memories. She will always remember his strong presence in her life and his unconditional love. The sound of his booming voice and laughter would always let you know he was near, it will always ring in her heart. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. Steve will be remembered by many friends who became as close as family. They were always there for one another through the good and the bad. He was known as the life of the party, fun to be around and someone you could depend on to be there at a moments notice. Steve was a kind and loving spirit. He loved to be outdoors and fishing was his passion. You could always find him outside working on cars or helping out a friend. Anyone needing a vehicle worked on knew who to bring it to. Steve was a wonderful uncle to his nieces and great nieces. He was always there for his family, he was funny and made life seem like an adventure and there was never anything to worry about. He enjoyed spending time with his great-nieces. Always up for whatever they wanted to do.
He will be deeply missed by his loving, caring partner Rochelle McClay. He showed her unconditional love. He always made her laugh and was a true gentleman bringing her flowers, taking her on dates every friday night, going fishing and traveling together. The last five years were some of the best years of her life. You will be missed love bug.
Steve will be fondly remembered by his most dear and treasured friend (Brother) Doug Cardenas for over 50 years. A recent fond memory was when Steve would buy the $10 pizza on Tuesdays from Papa Murphys and drop off the cowboy with extra toppings that they both liked. He would even sometimes bake it before he brought it over. Steve would always help whenever or with whatever Doug needed. These boys rode motorcycles together, drove fast cars, traveled the states, raised some hell and always had each-others backs. He sure is gonna miss his lifelong friend, Steve.
He is survived by Rochelle McCay of Brighton. His father James Barclay (Justina) of Ft. Lupton, Sister Susan Bruno (Samuel) of Wyoming, Nieces Ashley O’Neal(Caleb) of Wyoming, Sarah Wilson(Wesley) of Texas. Great nieces Aubrey, Gracie, Jessa and Gwen O’Neal of Wyoming. Rilynn and Abbigail Wilson of Texas.
He is preceded in death by his mother Sandra Barclay and older brother Jimmy.
Mathew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
We love you Steve
