Lynn I am deeply saddened by Steve’s death and am thinking of you all during this time. I remember Steve had the most awesome laugh! I won’t be able to attend the service but will be there in spirit as you remember and celebrate Steve’s life. 🌺

It has really saddened me to hear of Steve's passing. He and I went to Eastern together and were both PE majors hense having a few classes together. I remember him as a really good athlete and nice guy. He always had a smile on his face (when he wasn't competing). He was very competitive😄. Prayers go out to all of his family and people he touched along his life.
