    Rememberences; Steve’s wild and so-quick, wacky sense of humor… his loud, boisterous belly laughes…those serious moments when he spoke with concern and conviction… memories of 55+ years past.
    Good Speed ol’ high school friend.
    Condolences + prayers to/for his family,
    Edd R

    Deb and family Linda and I have a broken heart too. Steve was and will always be a very great friend. Just know he was loved by all that had a chance to really get to know him. In high school he had the old 1947 Studebaker and that was a funny story in itself…. and the red and white 1959 Ford with the retractable hardtop. Too many stories to mention that will live in my memory forever. Remember the good times with Steve…. I sure will. 🙁
