I have so many fond memories of Steve!
There is not a birthday party that I had that Steve didn't come to!!
He would come in with his amazing smile asking what drink can he buy for me!!
I'm going to miss his spontaneous text messages. Asking when are we going to get together for the next party!!
I miss you deeply Steve!
I pray your soul is now at peace!!
Love you!! Keshia

Dear loved ones of Steve,

Words cannot express what you may be going through.. I hope time eases the pain and that you know we all have steve’s family in our warmest thoughts and prayers. Steve lit up with energy, excitement, and humor and was an excellent confidante. I worked with him at Huntington Learning Center and used to laugh and share stories with him. Thank you to his family for sharing such a special and good hearted person with the world.

I remember especially that Steve and I jetted to downtown Chicago after dinner and drinks to go on an “art tour.” We saw many statues, murals, water features, and buildings. He knew them all! I will cherish that memory forever.. I appreciate Steve’s infectious joy and how he encouraged me to enjoy the moment.

May peace and comfort come on swift wings to you..
