Beverly and family, I am so so sad to have just found out about Steve's passing. I can not begin to tell you what a wonderful blessing he was to so many students at Ivy Tech. He was an awesome teacher and friend. I will carry his smile in my heart and remember his laughter. I pray that he now rests in peace and that you feel the love that Roger and I send.

The world is less unique without Steve in it. I enjoyed working with him and learned much. He was a special guy. I have many memories of him to go with the beautiful pottery that he shared with me over the years.

Always enjoyed visiting Steve with my dad on the scout camp. They don't come much finer than Steve. Rest well.
