To Gerri and all of Steve’s family,

After all of these years I have just learned of Steve’s passing. You may not remember me but you rented our house in Ingham when you were at Lakenheath. You were a wonderful couple and fantastic tenants; thank you. Please accept my deep condolences on Steve’s passing.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
