A young Wagga father has been remembered as a devoted dad, loving partner and a good man by those who knew him best.
The tragic death of Steve Schreiber, 30, in a car crash at Forest Hill on Wednesday has left his family devastated but determined to keep his memory alive.
Partner Sharna McTavish said Mr Schreiber's life revolved around their daughters, Aleeya, 5, and Ashlyn, 3, and they in turn adored their "hero".
He had met his partner, Sharna McTavish, on an online dating site in 2013.
"I was living in Canberra at that time, but I had family that lived here so when I came down to visit my mum we met and from then on we never separated," she said.
"Within a couple of weeks I moved down here to be with him and not too long after that I fell pregnant with my first daughter. His humour struck me instantly. He had some terrible dad jokes.
"He was always so happy. He was not an angry person, I don't think I ever saw him angry once. He was also so good-looking."
Ms McTavish said she loved how Steve called his two daughters Aleeya, 5, and Ashlyn, 3, his "tinies".
"I think he was shocked at how children were born, but as soon as he held them he was instantly head over heels," she said.
"His girls were his entire life, everything he did was for them. They loved their dad so much.
"He would take the eldest one on hunting trips and off they would go in their matching camo and they would send me silly selfies of them sitting by the fire."
Steve worked at RMT, the battery plant at Bomen for seven years and then started working at Austrack. Although his career meant shift work he was always prepared to play games, help around the house and make his family laugh.
"He had four days on, four days off, but even then he would still come home and had plenty of time for us," Ms McTavish said.
"One time we went out in the cold weather and went deer hunting, but mostly our date nights were child-free nights watching Netflix and having the food to ourselves.
"They were the best nights."
Ms McTavish said she has seven beautiful years of memories.
"I want people to know how genuine he was," she said. "I don't think he has one enemy in the world. He was just one of those people that everyone loved.
"They thought he was such a down to earth, loveable person."
Ms McTavish said she wants her daughters to grow up knowing their father was a good man who loved them more than anything in the world.
"I love him so much," she said. "It will be hard without him."
His mother-in-law Julie McTavish said she couldn't imagine a better father for her grandchildren or a better partner for her daughter.
His aunty, Sandra McTavish, said his wicked sense of humour, even if inappropriate at times, would never fail to make the family laugh.
