We have very fond memories of Steve when he Managed the family bowling alley here in Vicksburg MI. Steve enjoyed many friends and family during his time in Michigan. We fondly remember Steve at many family gatherings in both Michigan and Indiana and are saddened to hear of his passing. Our deepest sympathy to his family.
