Obituary: Sacramento lumberman Kenneth Steving

Kenneth Steving

Kenneth Steving, owner of New Home Building Supply in Sacramento, Calif., died Sept. 24 of complications from cancer, according to an obituary in the Sacramento Bee. He was 69 years old.

Steving operated New Home, along with his younger brother Wayne, for the past 30 years. They took over the business from their father Alfred, who founded the lumberyard in 1949.

Steving was a Corvette enthusiast who once owned three of the sports cars. But he may be best remembered for the tree house he built for his grandchildren, which was outfitted with double-glazed windows, hardwood floors and a chandelier.
