Steven Kerry Harp

March 6, 1958 — June 23, 2022

Steven Kerry Harp, 64, passed away at home on June 23, 2022, in Tuttle, OK following a courageous battle with cancer.
Steven Harp was born on March 6, 1958 in Oklahoma City, OK, to Billie Louise and Billy Harp. He spent his early childhood in Oklahoma City with his mother who he dearly loved. At the age of 12, he moved to Tuttle, Oklahoma, with his Dad and Margie where he was known by most as "Steve" or "Stretch." Throughout his school years, he was an athlete playing basketball and football for the Tuttle Tigers. He married his high school sweetheart Michaeleen Hunt and while the marriage was not destined to last, the two remained lifelong friends until his final days. As a teen, he discovered his love for fishing and spent the rest of his life perfecting his skills. One of his favorite fishing spots was Oney Dock at Fort Cobb Lake.
Steve began his career in concrete construction following high school graduation and was known for his meticulous work, being a perfectionist and best at working the trowel. He was always a hard worker and loyal employee driving a tractor for Braum's dairy, spent time upholstering furniture as well as working for Joe's Sod farm.
Steve married Lanita Hill and from that union was blessed with his two daughters Stephanie Anne and Kerry Mae. He loved his daughters and was a dad they could count on for anything. One of the greatest gifts his daughters gave him was his grandchildren that made him a Papa. They could always count on him to have a dumb dumb sucker ready when they came to visit. He enjoyed attending their football games, teaching them to fish, sometimes teasing and ruffling their feathers and got a kick out of playing tricks. He was big hearted, the best listener and mentor.
Steve was king of the grill and also known for his ability to fish and cook it the best. He loved watching football on TV so much he would record every single game on DVR. The lake was his home away from home and he considered himself the legend of Oney Dock. He was very intelligent, had a commanding presence and would argue with anyone. After all, he was always right.
Steve married Rene Stafford and Miranda Morris in later years and although these marriages were not to last, yet again Steve maintained a positive relationship with each of them. He was a survivor of many things, tough to the core and in many ways unbreakable. Life wasn't always easy, but he always persevered through any adversity. Steve is survived by his father Billy Harp and wife Margie; daughter Stephanie Harp; daughter Kerry Harp; seven grandchildren Adrian Harp, Moriah Potts, Kamryn Potts, Kamaya Potts, Kingston Potts, Carson Bryant and Zoey Bryant; sister Donna Keenan; sister Ramona Reed; sister Nakita Stiles; brother Kevin Harp and wife Patty along with nieces, nephews cousins and many friends.
Steve is preceded in death by his mother Bille Louise and brothers Choyah Calico, Danny Lamb and Eric Wilkinson.
