“Committed to serving my clients with compassion and honesty.”  

Steve grew up in eastern Iowa, the 5th child of Don and Myrtie Gilbert. He landed in Austin in the summer of 1986 for a week’s vacation with friends and within a few days knew that he had found a new home in Texas. Steve met and married his wife JJ in Austin and they have one son, Reilly. Steve enjoys spending time with his family, genealogy research, cycling, and spending time on the pool deck watching his son train and compete in competitive swimming. 

With 30+ years of customer service experience, 13 years in the monument industry, Steve partnered with Riley-Gardner Memorial Service Company and in October of 2014 they opened Riley Gardner Memorial of Austin, Austin’s premier monument provider. Steve enjoys assisting families through the monument process, “If I can help a family just a little bit during this difficult time then my day has been a success” adding “the connection you make with families is priceless, I am reminded daily that God has placed me here for a reason.” 

Our goal - provide our Austin and Texas hill country families with the highest quality monuments and markers in the industry, complete each project in a timely fashion, offer our families a product at reasonable prices,  and back our product and services with unmatched guarantees. 

“When your family is ready I would be honored to assist you.”
