My condolences to Steve's family and friends. I am a cousin on his mother's side and I have many fond childhood memories of Steve. He loved baseball and he was always listening to a game on his radio.
My deepest sympathy for your loss,

So very sorry Lynn and David for the loss of Steve. He was such a great neighbor and I always enjoyed our chats. He always looked out for me and watched my house when I was gone and made sure all was well. He always offered a helping hand. We bonded over sports and we were always talking about whatever game was on in any sport in any season. But I think I surprised him is when I said I was going one day to a WWE Smack Down live event. From that moment on we always talked WWE matches and it was really fun to see how he lit up and we got all into the entertainment of it all and of our favorite wrestlers. He really treasured the autographed photos of some of his favorites that he received. He will be sadly missed.

Mr. Steve you will be missed by all of the students and staff at Graham. You always had a smile on your face when ever anyone from my family saw you. My girls loved how you always support them by buying Girls Scouts cookies, and made them laugh at school.
