Stephen Dexter Cuzzort, 74, passed away on September 26, 2021. He was born in Batesville on September 6, 1947, to the late Ralph and Geneva (Buchanan) Cuzzort. Steve had a big personality. Anything that life could throw at him, he would always keep his head up and look at the positive side. He was a hard worker and the work he did over the years reflected that. He served his country by enrolling in the US Air Force right out of High School. Steve loved watching the Saint Louis Cardinals, reading as well as watching Westerns, and most of all he loved spending time with his family. His legacy and the memory of Steve and his big heart will live on through those that love and cherish him.
