So sorry to hear about Steve. We got to be friends because we sat near each other in home room because of our last names. Always a great guy.

I have been truly blessed to have worked with Steve and to have him as a friend. Over the last several years he has endured a lot, never once did I hear him complain and he always had a smile on his face. His family meant the world to him he spoke of all of you often. It's very hard to let go of our loved ones when God calls them home.

Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss of this wonderful guy. We would sometimes see each other at UVA to share stories when I was going through treatment. He will be greatly missed by many. I hope that knowing so many loved him will bring you and your family some peace.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Steve for many years. I can honestly say he was one of the most pleasant and admired persons I've ever known. Darned good draftsman too. The world will be a sadder place without Steve. My condolences to the family.
