    I can not express my sorrow at Steve’s passing. He will be sorely missed, I will miss him.
    My most sincere condolences to his family.

    I was able to get to know Steve when we would go spend a week in July at Camp Gieger with Troop 494 Boy Scouts. He was a great leader in the Knights of Columbus for our SSM Council and 4th Degree Assembly. I will miss him at my table in Iron Sharpens Iron. Lucy and I send our condolences to Marcia and his family.

    I can’t believe we have lost such a wonderful man. Please know we are available to all of us, Marcia, if you need us. Eternal Rest dear Steve.

    I’ve known Steve for over 20 years. I’ve had numerous enjoyable conversations with Steve over the years. We’re the the same age, born 34, days apart in 1959. So I think we had a special connection.

    I’m going to miss you, Steve. You were a true friend and a.model to me of what it means to be a Knights of Columbus brother.

    My love, prayers and condolences to Marcia and all of Steve:s family.

    Our time with Steve started with Boy Scouts…we enjoyed adventures on the Niobrara, sweated at Geiger and enjoyed our time in Medicine Mrn. He was a member of Friday morning men’s group and the Knighys. He was helping with a few landscape tasks in the recent past. His smiling face and light-hearted stories will be missed. He touched the lives of many young football players. Gone way too soon.

    I’ve known Steve for over 20 years. We’ve had some great conversations in those 20 years. I consider Steve a true-blue friend and model for me as to what it means to be a Knights of Columbus brother.

    My love, prayers and heart felt condolences to Marcia, and to the Williams family.

    This news was stunning. I have been in contact with Steve a good deal this year. He lived as a good example. I have known him since our days at NWB and early days with K of C. All of the experiences we shared as participating members of St Stephens, whether Scouts or Ushering or just relying on our common intersets. MKarcia, Amy, Emily and Michael, I have no words to soothe your loss but Steve will always be a source of comfort in your hearts and your memores will keep him alive in your lives.

    Dearest Marcia and Family,
    It is so hard to believe we will not see Steve’s smiling face at our get togethers, whether it be bunco, plays, sports events, b-b-ques, or just at your door or ours.You two are definitely family. You know you can ask anything, day or night, we are here for you. Prayers and love.
    Sue, Joe, and Boys
