I’ve only met Stephen a few times at the kids birthday parties at Kathleen and Ross’s house. I could tell he was a wonderful father and grandfather. I’m so sorry to the ones who are hurting from losing this wonderful man. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. 🙏

I have never known a world without you. My mom and Billy were probably waiting at the gate to welcome you. I am proud to call you family. I have many amazing memories but I really loved when us kids were little. Aunt Carol would cut mom hair, you and the boys would play some type of ball and I would play with Karen and Kathleen. The house over by Pleasant I remember most. And some time at the double house on Ridgeview. But nothing beats all those years of football and cheerleading. I love you Uncle Steve and I'm glad I had the chance to visit you that last time and tell you that you were my hero for all those years. The BEST fireman in Indianapolis!
