Steven Raymond Jeconiah Avila, age 40, passed away after a short but courageous battle with intestinal cancer on Monday, November 20, 2017 at Post Acute Medical Specialty Hospital in Greenfield, WI.

He enjoyed watching Wrestling with his father by his side on Monday night or any night for that matter. His other favorite pastime was watching TV shows like Family Feud, The Price is Right and Let’s make a Deal. He enjoyed time spent with his family especially playing cards with his nephews. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Steven was a member of St. Lucy’s Catholic Church.
