I only knew Steve because of E'ville Iron's Frog Follies, but what a legacy that has become. My condolences to Steve's family and friends.

I always enjoyed talking to him and occasionally helping him as he would pull pranks on other club members. R.I.P. Steve, you will be missed.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Steve my entire life. He watched me grow into the man I am today. Along with my father's before me, he helped me grow into the man I am today. I learned a lot from him and have so many wonderful memories that I can hold onto for the rest of my days. I work everyday in such a way that my father's before me would be proud of and now I'll be doing the same for you. You were like family to me and I'll miss you dearly. Rod on my friend.

One of the funny stories about Steve was when Karen Harris had to drive his T-bucket home from a rod run. Club members know complete details. Steve had a dry sense of humor which I loved about him. Great loss for all of us

Always enjoyed being with Steve. One funny time is when Karen Harris had to drive his T-Bucket home from a rod run. He had a Klingon of dry sense of humor
