Harold ‘Steve’ Carpenter, 61, of Ironton Ohio went to be with the Lord with family by his side on February 16, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer at the Hospice Care Center in Ashland, Ky. Steve was born on February 15, 1958, in Ironton, Ohio where he spent most of his life. Steve enjoyed dirt track racing and just being out in the dirt and mud. Some of the best memories were made at the dirt tracks in the area. It was a way of life for him, his home away from home and his second family. Steve enjoyed working on the race cars, supporting the drivers and most of all the thrill of the dirt flying as the cars round the turns. He is survived by mother Linda Carpenter; wife, Kim Herrell; sister Pam Williams (Eric Williams); sons Nate Herrell and Tim Herrell (Megan Herrell); daughters Jamie Hinzman (Tony Hinzman), Amy Grizzle (Ashley Grizzle) and Kayla McFann; grandchildren Wyatt and Gavin Herrell, Blake Bruce, Caleb Hinzman, Brooklyn Wilson, Kaiden Cooper, Tailyn McFann and Kayson McFann; nieces Dana Baker (Mike Baker), Vincent Keairns, Victoria Keairns, Sarah Moore (Stephen Moore) and Brighton Moore. He was preceded in death by father Harold Carpenter; granddaughter Rilynne Hinzman; and grandson Keidan Bean. Services will be held Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 4pm, visitation to begin at 3pm at Hall Funeral Home and Crematory, 625 County Road 775, Proctorville, Oh. In true Steve fashion, family requests casual family attire, “race track shirts” if available. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the family.
