Steve Alfred Acosta (1960-2022)

Our father, Steve Alfred Acosta, died at the age of 62 on April 21, 2022, in Piru, CA. Steve was born on April 11, 1960, in Oxnard, CA, to Viola Anne and Alfred Andrew Acosta. Steve was raised in the great town of Piru, CA, and graduated from Fillmore High School. He was brother to Jeffrey Curtis Acosta and Stephanie Ann Acosta. Steve was a jack-of-all-trades and enjoyed his work as a professional welder for 25 years. He enjoyed the waters and canyons of greater Piru and loved spending time with his family. He was a genuine friend, and his kindness was well known by many. Steve now leaves his legacy, hopes, and dreams in the hearts and hands of his children, grandchildren, and family.
Steve is preceded in death by his brother, Jeffrey Curtis Acosta, father, Alfred Andrew Acosta, grandmother, Lupe Dominguez, and grandfather, Fermin Ramirez. Steve leaves behind his daughters, Diana Marie (Acosta) Sawyer and Amber Natividad (Acosta) Campbell, sons, Steve Andrew Acosta and Daniel Thomas Drum, and grandchildren, Maya Isabella Thompson, Madison Natividad Thompson, Aiden Orion Campbell, Slade Lee Campbell, Rhyder Dakoda Bear Campbell, Harper Faith Campbell, and Finley Sawyer. Steve also shared his love and influence as a father to Hailey Drum and Aubree Drum, and had love for his friend of many years, Kimberly Drum.
Steve was a well loved, good man, who, at his core, strived to be an honorable father, son, and brother. Our dad is truly and deeply missed. There are no words to convey our sorrow over the sudden and tragic death of our father. We miss you dad, we love you dad, now and always. Your soul has been returned home; be at peace.
Steve will be cremated, and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Thank you to our dear family and friends for your love and support during this difficult time.
