Beaver was a Price Hill boy, went to Holy Family, Elder and played BIG10 football at Northwestern. He had more than one run in with Woody and the Buckeyes, Notre Dame, Michigan and Nebraska. He was tough and fearless…but at the same time kind and always there for those in need.

He lived life to the fullest and at the early age of 4 earned his nickname Beaver…he grew up fast. He learned to take three buses across town to the Cincinnati Zoo by the 3rd grade and rode his bicycle to the Indianapolis 500 from Cincinnati in the 7th grade with his brother, sleeping in a corn field on the two day trip.

Beave spent his life doing the things he loved. He did it all with passion, perfection and skill. He was a race tracker at heart, worked the backside, grandstand and mutuels. Beaver did woodwork at his pace and at a standard to last forever. He owned “JR & Scar’s Bar” across from Dempsey Park and three blocks from his childhood home.

Beave had musical talent…self taught and a teacher he played both the piano and the guitar by ear. He tried out for “America’s Got Talent” twice and was gunning for a third. He dealt Black Jack and knew when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.

To the Kramer family Beaver was always the life of the party. They loved to hear him sing and play the guitar at the family parties. They appreciated his love for life, Bud Light and occasional gin and Tonic. They admired the fight inside of him. To the kids he was everyone’s favorite “Uncle Beaver.”

To his sisters and brother he was and meant everything. To Sue he was uncompromising and steadfast to Pat he was the there, reliable dependable to Nancy he was compassionate and fun and to Mike (Judge) his brother he was his best friend, they traveled through life’s many adventures as one, fought many battles together and only lost one. We will miss him.

Beaver loved his friends, family and most of all his wife of 18 years, Lisa.

My best friend from high school, Sandy, and I met Steve & Mike on the beach during spring break in the early 1980s. Mike had his books he was studying and Steve had his guitar. Steve and I quickly became friends for a few years. He told me how he and Mike rode their bikes all the way to the Indy 500 from Cincinnati. He entertained us on the piano and sang ‘jingles’ with his guitar. He was amazing with a Rubik’s cube. It is a wrenching punch to the gut to learn of his passing. My heart goes out to his wife, Mike and his other family members. Steve was full of life and energy—not to mention he was an excellent athlete.

My sincere condolences to the family and close friends of "Beave". Although we were classmates at Elder, I didn't really get to know and appreciate his unique sense of simplicity and humor until we found ourselves both working at River Downs in the mid to late 1970s. I can't help think of those days talking with him without a chuckle and a smile. May such memories help bring some comfort to his family and loved ones. Greg E.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the Scardina family. His was as strong a link in the "Brotherhood Chain of '73" as anyone. What a solid classmate, team mate and brother.
