Stephen Paul “Steve, Squatch” Erwin, 41, of Ellsworth, Michigan, went home to Jesus on September 18th, 2021, surrounded by his family. Loving husband of Rachelle, for 3 amazing years. Proud father of Chloe Erwin and son, Landen McCalib. He was the beloved son of Stephen Lee and Teresa Erwin. A Friend to all, brother to many.
Steve loved Harley motorcycles, classic cars, and custom trucks. Living out in the country he enjoyed hunting, riding his horse, and especially riding dirt bikes with his son and his friends. In the winter he would trailer the family, and their snowmobiles, all over the north to find new sites. Every day was an adventure in the Erwin household.
Always known for his sense of humor, larger-than-life personality, and most infectious laugh, it was never difficult to find the big guy in a crowd! Steve was quite the social butterfly and was out and about at different events whenever he had the chance.
Another joy in his life was serving. Steve loved helping at church events, and anywhere he was needed. He was a pivotal part of the local non-profit DYSUN, serving as a board member. Steve also proudly held the position of Vice President to the Huron Valley Chapter Copperheads, a Law Enforcement/First Responder motorcycle club.
