Steve was always good to discuss any topic under the sun, very bright guy and he would tell you so. Lots of good discussions about science, history , religion, the job, and of course politics. No matter how you think you have him stumped he would always come back with something to add that made you think. Lots of good debates with Bill McAvoy and the Duff gang. Good guy who will be missed.

Steve was one of the most unforgettable people I've met - garrulous, intelligent, opinionated and generous. My sincere condolences to his close friends and family.

I liked Steve from the moment I first met him in 1975. I enjoyed working with him because there never was a dull moment when he was around. Steve was smart, honest, had a big heart, and never met a stranger. We had a lot of conversations over the 30+ years we worked together. I feel like I learned something or heard something interesting each time we talked. My comment and belief about Steve was - He is someone who knows a lot about a lot of things. It was my honor to know Steve. My sincere condolences to his sister, special friends and co-workers.

I worked with Steve at Pratt & Whitney both as a Structures Engineer and later as a Material review Engineer. At each and every meeting, Steve was very knowledgeable and passionate about being sure the parts he accepted met all requirements. Beyond that, he was also kind-hearted and personable, sharing great adventures and memories of his life and experiences. It was a true pleasure to know and work with him. Unfortunately I cannot attend his service scheduled for Sunday, April 7, as I am scheduled to work all day that day. God Bless You and God Bless Steve.
