Steven and I were childhood friends. I went to a very old historic school. I was surrounded by history and a family that believed in God and forgiveness. One day Steven would join our school. I remember him singing sweetly my name across the room. How wonderful it was to have a friend like Steven. His laughter was contagious. Whenever i had a problem I could turn to Steven he was my library partner and my friend.

Steven was a childhood friend we played together and enjoyed all the wonderful things in the world. Steven was Jewish I was catholic but my parents said god choose us to be friends. We’d chase each other on the playground and we study in the library. Steven was always a gentleman I could be somewhat of a brat. But he always had laughter and forgiveness. Our principal was kind but strict he had had a little girl who had passed he said there were no bad children just children who braved badly and he had a black book he carried around he said I never want to see your name in my black book but sometimes it just happened like the time I got caught running in the hall. Steven one day would save many lives with his nationwide campaign life comes at you fast. His dream was to be a star that and world peace. On the day he passed Britain named a star after Steven. Steven I’m so glad you were my friend love means never having to say your sorry but sometimes it’s necessary. Steven now in the dark night there’s a new star in heaven a new hope. I knew god had great things in mind when he created you. I wonder what he was thinking when he created me. Our god is an awesome god. I wonder what he was thinking when he created the tree. I’m just so glad he gave me you as a friend for me.

Words cannot express my sadness over the passing of my dear friend. I remember great fun with Steve at Beau in Canton, OH, and so many other times when we laughed so hard our sides hurt. Steve's wonderful spirit will live on in my heart and memories. I am sending heartfelt condolences to the entire family.

I fondly remember the first time I met Steven (prior to his actual hire date at Nationwide). His infectious laugh, warm & welcoming manner and ability to HEAR you were evident from that day forward. He was always supportive and encouraging. His humor and creativity were well known and so very appreciated. Who will ever forget Fabio's visit? Really, that was a true Steven moment.

To Steven's family, my deepest condolences. He was liked, loved and admired by many, many people. He will be sorely missed.

Steven was highly intelligent. In freshman year along with my sister who also works for nationwide translated from Greek to Latin to Hebrew to English so we might understand each other better. We studied Greek mythology and the the gods of side mideas venus and Thor. It was fun and interesting. And very educational. He was in theater we acted out Many plays. Sharing our worlds. He helped my children. In his honor because he’s always been a Star I’ve sent a star up to heaven from nasa where I used to take school groups. England sent the gift from the star register. You’ll be able to look and find the star with Stevens name. A light in the darkness. He shown brightly. I had one photo of Steven and I laughing this is a painting of a sillotte of a child playing that I painted. There is a second.

I just saw Steven on April 27th. He came to my birthday party at a local pub. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was the kindest man I’ve ever known. He genuinely cared a bout everyone. Even if you just met him, he treated you like he knew you for years. I met him 15 years ago. I’m hosting a get together on June 2 at the same pub. He touched so many lives. We’re going to get together and share all our memories of him. Laugh and cry. I’ve started taking donations for Milestones Autism Research Center in Stevens memory. Everything collected from now until June 2 will be donated in is memory. I still can’t believe he’s gone. My heart goes out to all his family. He was truly many. Take care of each other. ❤️
