Steven W. Pickett, age 38, of Fredericktown, Ohio, and formerly of Linton, Indiana, died peacefully in his sleep on Monday evening, December 13, 2010, at his residence.

On March 1, 1972, Steve was born in Linton, Indiana, the son of the late Wilson and Carolyn Mae (Marshall) Pickett. He graduated from White River Valley High School in Switz City, Indiana, in the Class of 1991.

On May 21, 2004, Steve married the love of his life, Robin A. Jardon. They shared a special bond over the last six years.

Steve was the founder of the USBRA (United States Bigfoot Research Association). He hosted an internet radio show for the association and organized many picnics and get-togethers for the members. He was proud to have two Bigfoot sightings in his life.

An avid fisherman, Steve loved casting his reel anywhere he was able to fish. One of his dreams was to go deep sea fishing and catch a shark. He also enjoyed collecting guns and was known for his massive collection of Transformers.
