Steve was such a great man, he went to any length to see a smile on my face and the faces of my co-workers at Brian's. He faithfully came in every night at 5pm for dinner for at least 6 years. He was a cat lover, he loved his family very much and was a big fan of banana cream pie :) He was always there to listen to my problems and give me advice and guidance, there to share his wisdom. He brought us candy at least 3 times a week just to make us smile. He bought the whole staff Christmas presents. And every birthday we had he was sure to buy a card. He was more than just a regular customer, he was family. Things won't be the same without him sitting there in the corner goofing around with the other regulars and giving us girls a hard time. I will miss him greatly, he will never be forgotten.
