Stephen Michael Rains, 68, passed from this life February 23, 2022, in Hobbs, New Mexico.
He was born March 13, 1953, to Bob and Marcie Rains.
Steve was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Marcie Rains; a sister, Rhonda Dunn; and a brother and sister-in-law, Robert and LaVena.
As the last of a generation of our family, he will be especially missed.
He is survived by his best friend of 40 years, his aunt, Jan Rotenberry; niece, Jeanie Dunn and her children, Gage and Rhonnie; niece, Anne Flores and husband, John and their children, Marcie and Sebastian; and nephew, David Rains.
Uncle Steve loved all of his nieces and nephews and often commented that they were all great, not just the youngest ones.
He was a life-long member of Taylor Street Church of Christ.
Steve loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and longed to meet him.
He had many jobs through his life, but found his passion in teaching.
Steve was an avid reader and shared that joy through his teaching. He taught first grade for several years and then adults in the prison system.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to either New Mexico Christian Children’s Home or the Children’s Home of Lubbock.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 12, at Taylor Street Church of Christ of Hobbs.
