Our dear brother, Steven Vogel, of the Greater Louisville Family Church in Kentucky, ascended to the Spirit World on Saturday, March 4, after battling cancer. Steve met our Unification family in his hometown Louisville and was soon inspired by the Divine Principle. His joyful spirit sustained him through recent health difficulties, and he was a source of joy and hope for those around him. He is survived by his wife Malinda and their son Nicholas.
Let us join together in support of Steve's family during this special and important time, and pray for his victorious transition to a glorious new life in the spiritual world.
Following are a bio by Steve's wife and his Seonghwa information from Pastor Norman Presley.

My husband Steven Vogel was born in 1952 in Louisville, Kentucky to a family of seven children. They were raised Catholic, but he began searching and researching different religions right after high school. He heard the Divine Principle while still living at home, and quickly decided to move to the Louisville church center. He attended several workshops and was chosen to go to East Garden, where he helped with construction and security. Later on, he became a familiar face as a security guard at the New Yorker Hotel. We received the Marriage Blessing in 1982 and have one son, Nicholas.
Even though he struggled with diabetes for 20 years, and cancer for three, he always continued to witness and bring joy and hope to other patients, doctors, nurses and neighbors, no matter where we lived or how he was feeling.
He ascended to the spirit world on March 4, and the Seonghwa will be held Wednesday, March 8, at 2pm at the Awkard-Lyons Funeral Home in Louisville.
