Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Steven Ray Henninger who was born in Wisconsin on January 19, 1961 and passed away on November 12, 2004 at the age of 43. We will remember him forever.



Remember me this way

Every now and then we find a special friend
Who never lets us down
Who understands it all
Reaches out each time you fall
You're the best friend that I've found
I know you can't stay
A part of you will never ever go away
Your heart will stay

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
If life will just be kind
To such a gentle mind
And If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

I don't need eyes to see
The love you bring to me
No matter where I go
And I know that you'll be there

For ever more a part of me you're everywhere
I'll always care

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
If life will just be kind
To such a gentle mind
And if you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

And I'll be right behind your shoulder watching you
I'll be standing by your side in all you do
And I won't ever leave as long as you believe
You just believe...

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life will just be kind
To such a gentle mind
And if you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way



~Shine Your Light~

The cry of the city like a siren's song
Wailing over the rooftops the whole night long
Saw a shooting star like a diamond in the sky
Must be someone's soul passing by

These are the streets
Where we used to run where your Papa's from
These are the days
Where you become what you become
These are the streets
Where the story's told
The truth unfolds
Darkness settles in

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength
To carry on, carry on

Don't wanna be a hero
Just an everyday man
Trying to do the job the very best he can
But now it's like living on borrowed time
Out on the rim, over the line
Always tempting fate like a game of chance
Never wanna stick around to the very last dance
Sometimes I stumble and take a hard fall
Lose hold your grip off the wall

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on
Carry on

I thought I saw him walking by the side of the road
Maybe trying to find his way home

He's here but not here
He's gone but not gone
Just hope he knows if I get lost

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on
Carry on


The Broken Chain We knew little that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.

His legacy
Steve Henninger  
Steve Henninger was born to Harold W. and Joan E. Henninger on January 19, 1961 in Milwaukee, WI. He had six brothers and two sisters all of which were older than him, except for one. His oldest sibling was Patricia and she was born on June 9, 1950. Continuing down the line, are Michael (August 11, 1951), Bruce (Nov. 9, 1952), Randy (December 20, 1954), Terry (July 4, 1956), Nancy (Feb. 1, 1958), Hal (June 15, 1959) and Ricky (July 2, 1963). Steve moved to Erin and grew up there until he graduated from high school. In 1979 he moved to Canandaigua, NY, where he would spend the rest of his life. Shortly after arriving in New York he got a job at the Canandaigua Wine Company. Three years later Steve was blessed with his first son, Christopher Steven Henninger, on July 17, 1982. His second son, Joshua Raymond Henninger arrived on June 30, 1985. He was an avid sports fan from the time he was little and throughout his adult years. Steve cheered on "his" Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers. In his spare time he enjoyed playing softball and being an umpire for adult softball and little league games. In between all of this he found time to attend every single one of his boy’s games, whether it be a hundred degree day in July or a negative five degree day in December.
