He will be truly missed, yet there is comfort in him going home with GOD. May he rest in peace and my deepest condolences to all of you. Sharon, Alan, Brenda and Mrs. Muenster. My love to you all.

I had to pleasure of meeting Steve and his brother Alan through playing softball over ten years ago. As part of a team, we all got to share some great laughs and memories together. Steve was they type of guy that always seemed positive and was so glad he was my teammate. You will be missed my friend.

Happy, kind, easy going, Steve was so easy to like and to work with. I worked across the aisle from Steve for about 15 to 20 years, never heard a bad word from him or about him. I am shocked at this loss. Rest In Peace brother. Peace and Consolation of the Lord be with his family.
