Steve Rainey went to be with his Lord and Savior on July 5, 2014 at the age of 47.
He was born in Hereford, TX on June 28, 1967 and grew up in Carrollton, graduating from Newman Smith High School in 1985. He is the loving husband of Shelley Rainey; devoted father to his son, Joshua Rainey, age 13, and daughter, Lexi, age 10, of Lewisville. For all those who ever knew him he brought joy and faith to our lives. We caught his faith by watching his life. His commitment to excellence and integrity preceded his name. Steve recently became an ordained minister, fulfilling his calling. We will miss him, his playful humor, humble spirit, his wise words and his warm heart.
