The Sisk are very good friends of mine and a pillar in the community. Steve ran Hobgood Park maintenance of the fields and Janice worked at Chick-fil-A. They have 3 boys, one being Down Syndrome. They have lived in Summerchase in Towne Lake over 25 years. Steve also drove a school bus for Cherokee county schools for his second job. That provided insurance for the family especially for Anderson being that he has Down syndrome. On April 2020, Steve was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, a glioblastoma. From April, 2020 to January 2021 Steve had 3 surgeries for removal of tumor and the subsequent complications of scar tissue. Along with the surgeries,he also had to endure several rounds of chemo and radiation treatments. During those months Steve still tried to maintain the fields at Hobgood Park. Janice stopped working at Chick-fil-A to be able to take care of Steve and take him to his doctor appointments Steve fought a hard fight for 10 months. The Last several months were hard for all the family. Everyone pulled together and stayed around the clock with him.
After consulting with Steve’s neuro oncology team on the efficacy of further treatments, the family made a compassionate decision to bring hospice care into their home to make Steve more comfortable. Steve passed away peacefully at home in June.
Steve has had a positive impact on many kids through coaching and/or on his bus over the years. Janice now trying to maintain Hobgood and applying to drive a bus to help ends meet. Their house really needs a new roof but Janice can’t afford one. I would love to surprise her with a new roof. I would really appreciate the consideration.
