Mr. Steve grew up working in his father’s furniture manufacturing plant; after serving in the military he returned to work there. In 1992 Mr. Steve & Mrs. Sheila opened the original Home Furniture & Mattress Outlet in Cordele, Georgia. Their goal was to sale quality new furniture at prices everyone could afford, while always honoring God. They passed that same philosophy on to their son, and it continues in the business today. After decades of hard work Mr. Steve & Mrs. Sheila are now enjoying their retirement, whether it is fishing, gardening, taking care of their chickens, or riding their golf cart at their home near Lake Blackshear. They are known for their caring and giving personalities, always to help whenever and however needed. On occasion they extend their helpfulness back to Home Furniture, happily helping however they can.
