I would like to say to the family of Steve that I’m very sorry for your loss. Steve was my best friend when we served aboard the Bradley. We did everything together, traveling to Anaheim almost every weekend to see Tate & Terri hanging out having a good time away from the navy. Steve was a great guy to hang out with. We liked the same music. Back then we listen to a lot of Neil Young, he would play and sing the songs all the time. Steve was a true friend. He was my best man when I got married in Anaheim. I hope you all the best during this sadness we all have. Steve was and will always be my friend.
