Steven Carl Acker
October 17, 1950 ~ September 1, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old
Steven Carl Acker went home to be with his heavenly Father on September 1, 2023. Steve passed in peace and leaves behind many to cherish his memory. A one-of-a-kind human, Steve is survived by his beloved pup Kira, bonus daughter Kimberly (Kurt) Krause of Raleigh, two very special grandchildren Keeghan and Kellyn, brother James Acker of Lansing, sister-in-law Marla Hatton of Raleigh, and many caring friends. The family especially wants to thank his loving and faithful caregiver Morgan Moore. Steve was born and raised in Lansing Michigan a true Spartan, a lover of all creatures wild and tame devoting his journalism career to educating and entertaining people about all of the mysteries and wonders of our natural world. Steve moved to North Carolina 22 years ago with his wife Sandy(deceased).
Steve was a member of Hanks Chapel UCC, loved attending there, he had a special talent for helping people see beyond his wheelchair with a smile, a high five, or a peace sign for everyone he met. Steve knew no strangers. Steve loved baseball, good music, chocolate covered cherries, and all canines. His unconditional love, patience, and grace will certainly be missed. In keeping with his wishes, Steve was cremated. The family is being served by Donaldson Funeral Home of Pittsboro, NC. Arrangements are yet to be finalized; a memorial service is being planned for October the month of Steve's birth.
Surely a God that could create and share such beauty is a loving Master. If we can only live in harmony with nature, we'll be able to see God in all his world. Our ancestors kept in touch with the seasons and knew fully the wonders of the natural world. It may not seem quite as easy for us to do that given today's lifestyle, but we can if we so choose. Those wonders and the awe they inspire await us all.
