I knew Steve during his Days at Delphi. He was a very Honest Man. I remember he would go to see some car races with us from time to time and we could count on him for Lunch in or out while working at Delphi. He conducted several Damper tests for me and always did a good job.
He liked to talk about his Life in Louisville and was a big fan of the Belle of Louisville. He talked me into taking a cruise on it with Pam during the Tall Stacks festivals in Cincinnati. I gave him some digital pictures of "the Belle" and he used those for his Desktop picture on his Computer at work.
He stopped by a couple of times to help me with some ceiling drywall in my Garage and I would, in return, repair the Carburetor on his Tractor. I always kidded him that he spelled his name Correctly.
He will be missed.

Stephen and Pamela Hagwood
