Steven Roger Bacon
Steven Bacon was born on November 27, 1948 in Toledo, Ohio. He graduated from Rossford High School in 1967. Steve volunteered during the draft for the U.S. Army in February 1968 and spent a 13-month tour with an infantry division in the Republic of Vietnam. Steve was awarded The Army Commendation Medal with "V" Device for heroism on May 5, 1969. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army on September 30, 1969. On October 17, 1970, he married the love of his life, Patricia Robinson, and they lived in Northwood Ohio where they raised two children who provided them with three grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Steve worked for 33 years in the maintenance department at a local auto glass factory. Other than his family, Steve's passions were restoring classic cars, fishing, and golfing. Steve was a lifetime member of the Northwood VFW Post 2984, and loved to take car trips all over the United States with his wife in his classic cars, and vacation on the big island of Hawaii. Steve loved his family more than life itself and often said he would not have been the man he was, after coming home from his military service, if it weren't for the love and support from his family. Steve passed away on November 14, 2015 after a long, difficult struggle with illnesses and complications due to his exposure to Agent Orange while in Vietnam, and the effects of PTSD. Steve will forever be remembered and missed terribly, by his family and many friends, for his undying love and the strength he always exhibited.
