So sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I'm was a classmate and have such good memories of him always being so kind, gentle, and everything done with a sense of humor. It was great to see him this past summer at our class reunion and get a hug from him. First time I heard him entertain was that night when he provided some memorable music. The music was great and he sure was enjoying himself. My sympathy to his family. He will be missed.

Our deepest sympathy... I knew Steve in high school when he played for Mosby and the Raiders. He sure loved his music!! We always talked music when we ran into each other. He was so proud of his kids and their music. May your memories comfort you and your family during the coming year.

Steve and I would play the "Who sang this song?" game every time we saw each other. He was the first guy I became friends with when I first started working at Farmland way back in 1981!

I always enjoyed when foggy would come in and have a tea, at the bar. He would always have an interesting story or two to tell. He could always make people smile, and laugh. Many times he made my day better just by listening to me, and telling me a joke. I will miss him. My deepest sympathy, and condolences to the family.
