Samuel Steven “Steve” Ennis of the Grab Community of Green County, son of the late Verman Cook Ennis and Virgie Alice Trowbridge Ennis, was born on Thursday, October 21, 1948, in Green County and departed this life on Wednesday, August 10, 2022, at the Jewish Hospital in Louisville. He was 73 years, 9 months, and 20 days of age.
He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of the Russell Creek Missionary Baptist Church where he served as a deacon. Steve had worked for the former Clark Casual Furniture Manufacturing for 24 years, but he was also a lifelong farmer which was a love of his. Steve loved traveling especially to tractor shows. Green County was special to him along with its history in which he took part and was a member of the Green County Historical Society. Auctions and trading were wonderful pastimes that he enjoyed. Jerry Arnett, one of his best friends who passed away this past year, was a great loss to him. Going to Jerry’s store, hanging out, and loafing with all the passersby was a special part of his life. With all this said, he especially loved spending time with his grandchildren, and his nieces and nephews.
Survived by his beloved wife of almost 22 years, Norma O. Houk Ennis of Green County having united in marriage on September 8, 2000.
