I’ll always remember the get-togethers at Steve and Judy’s house when Marilyn and Neil Clauser brought their family for a visit to Fort Wayne. Notre Dame football games, lots of food and tons of fun with all of our cousins. Steve was always the best host! There was lots of laughter, yelling at the TV, cheering and sometimes booing. When I think of Steve, I see his big smile and hear his laugh. Prayers for his sweet daughters and their families.
