I have a great wealth of memories of Stephen Collins Yednock Jr. to treasure. My first theater experience with him was in MAD's 1999 "Damn Yankees," when I was baseball player Linville and he was my Baseball Commissioner, in addition to playing 2 other characters. I especially treasure his asking me to play the priest character in his thought-provking one-act, "Life Inside A Hershey Bar." And didn't he play harmonica in the MAD holiday chorus? His story about the marksmanship bet that he made while in the military is I think my favorite all time story about military service. My condolences to his wife Peg, and to his most important legacy of all, his marvelous son and daughter, Stephen P. Yednock and Meg Ann Nemeth.

Courtney and I had the honor of performing in several of Mr. Yednock's short plays for MAD's Spring Drama workshop. They were cleverly written and fun to perform in. "Blind Double Date" was our favorite for obvious reasons. We always looked forward to seeing him and his family at GAC and MAD performances. We will miss him.

Steve Yednock was a wonderful human being whose love and humor were felt by everyone who met him. He left a bit of his spirit wherever he touched. He is now laughing and dancing in Heaven. My prayers for his wife Peg, his children Steve and Meg, and his precious grandson, Bert. May you all remember and bask in his joy, for he is forever with you.

Stephen was one of the friendliest people I know. When I first met him, he worked in building 14 and I worked in building 3. He would periodically walk over to my office or if I was in his building, I would stop by his office. What should have been a 3-5 minute quick chat usually was a 30-40 minute chat about whatever crossed his mind. He always had such a good outlook on life and he loved the theater with all his heart. He apparently thought about theater all the time and would cast shows or movies with his friends or other MAD members in mind. He had such a vivid imagination for the stage and screen. Although it was 10 years ago, he loved our production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and he repeatedly told me that he loved my performance and always remembered me as Snoopy. He was a big fan of mine, but what he may not have known is that I was a big fan of his. He raised two wonderful children who love him dearly and I hope that I can be as good a father as he. He was such a good example of what a good man and father should be.

We are so sorry for your loss. All of MAD will miss him. Steve was a very talented man who loved his family and life. He wrote many scripts and enjoyed irony. Go in peace Steve.
