Steve was kind man. It was easy to be intimidated by his size, but when you got closer to him - you knew he was a gentle man. I have many memories of Steve. One of my favorites is when he took me to Lone Star Park and taught me about horse racing. He knew I wanted to learn and he took the time to take me and teach me . I still think of him every time I drive by, and I still use the tips he taught me.
There are many more memories I have of Steve, but this is the one that I remember most frequently.
With deepest sympathy to his family, which I know he loved tremendously, and they loved him too.

So very sorry to lose Steve. I had the pleasure of playing cards with him for the past 30 years. He had a wonderful sense of humor; of course, he was usually taking my money, which he certainly enjoyed. I will miss him, so much. Just a wonderful person.
