Steven Ranes passed away on June, 28th 2022 in Mesquite, Tx unexpectedly when he suffered a stroke at the age of 63.
Steve was born August 16, 1958 in Naples, Tx to Rafel and Margie Ranes. They moved to Mesquite Tx in 1960 when he was 2 and that is where he grew up. He had two children, Melanie and Dustin Ranes, who then blessed him with the grandchildren that would call him "Paw". He was an amazing Paw and loved spoiling his grandbabies. Being at the farm was his happy place with his Uncle Randall and his brother. He had a true passion for farming, growing watermelon, and blaring his music with his brother, Bryan. He loved his family and friends and most of all the Dallas Cowboys. He also loved scratch off tickets, fantasy football, football pots and horse racing, but he wouldn't tell anyone when he won. Steve had a huge heart and loved unconditionally but could also be very bossy and stubborn, those who were loved by him wouldn't have wanted him any other way, He was Steve Ranes.
Steve is survived by his father Rafel Ranes, daughter Melanie Ranes Hawkins, son, Dustin Ranes, Grandchildren, Ryan Hawkins, Lucas Hawkins, Kinslee Eakin and Charlotte Ranes, his brother, Bryan Ranes, Niece and Nephew Kristin and Clayton Ranes.

A limb has fallen from the family tree
I hear a voice that whispers, 'Grieve not for me'
Remember the best times, the laughter, the songs
The good I lived while I was strong
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you
Keep on smiling, the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest
Remembering all...how I was truly blessed
Continue traditions, no matter how small
Go on with your lives, don't stare at the wall
I miss you all dearly so keep up your chin
Until that fine day we're together again
