My little cousin Steve! When he was born I was 6 or 7. I remember uncle Bill and Aunt Azell getting married. a little church, a lot of people! Cousin Steve was an usher at Russell's wedding. He passed out from standing to long I felt so bad but he was OK. We spent a few times camping when we where kids. The weekend swiming was the most fun cause we got to be with steve and cousin Linda. Then we grew up! I was In the NAVY and Steve jouined the AIR FORCE. Years passed. Marie, I LOVE YOU. You are a real special woman and I know how you are to my family. We love you. The brother you hardly now but you impacted my life from A FAR! I could write for hours. I wont.

Steve and I both graduated high school from San Juan in 1885. Our lives crossed again when we were both contracting at Sutter Health on the same project, and once again when we were both hired on at Sutter Health a few years later.
To say Steve will be missed is a gross understatement. I am still in shock that his life has ended and our lives will not cross again. My prayers go out to his family and friends, may God give you comfort.

It's hard for me to find the words that can truly express my feeings towards Steve's Passing.
Steve you've left a great impresssion on me and those around you, and I'm sure where ever you are now you will continue to do the same.

Your Charger friend.

Steve...we miss you so much already. Still can't believe you're gone. You made a lasting impression on all of us and our hearts are heavy. May you rest in peace with your loved ones that have gone before you.

Marie...we are keeping you close in thought and prayer. Please let us know if there is anything we can do during this very difficult time. We are very close, only about 15 minutes away.

I was privileged to work closely with Steve when we were at Cal-Fed Bank. Steve was my mentor and my friend. He taught me everything that I knew about Servers, and how to support a network. I am still in shock because I just found out about this. I'm so used to seeing his ‘available' icon on MS Instant Messenger, to think that I'll never see him again is just…surreal. Marie, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Marie, Martha and I are terribly saddened by the loss of our friend.
We all met at the 40th and Steve and I got to know each other better in the next 5 years planning our trip(s) to the 45th in Detroit. That is a weekend we will never forget. From the show to dinner to just sitting after and enjoying your company. A memorable weekend and great times.
Steve and I shared our fondness for our furry felines as well as our Charger's birthdays being days apart.
Marie, I sincerely hope we can remain in touch - and for Steve, RIP my friend.
