I loved Steve the minute I met him.  He was way too charming, all the ladies loved him. He was a great athlete in any sport he did.  He was caring and had compassion for others.  He was the worlds best camper, often traveling with a camp sofa in the back of his truck.  He loved car races and concerts and loved to share the excitment. The most touching thing about him was how caring and loving he was to my mom. Bringing her fish after a trip out or bringing in extra firewood, always laughing and engaging in a fun conversation. He had a kind soul.

I remember Steve from Evergreen Elementary School days.  He was a natural leader...he was the biggest kid in the class.  I remember one day we were taught about finger prints.  We were told that everyone's prints were different.  Steve and I didnt believe it...but then we were in third grade, or was that second?  Steve was a gentle, kind kid, accepting of most everyone around, nor did he lord his great height over anyone.  I am saddened to here of his death.
