Steve volunteered on our GHS 74 class reunion committees, he brought the fun, the enthusiasm and the hard work needed to make the reunions successful. He was quite willing to raise a turkey to feed us and he wanted to contribute his own home grown 'taters (mashed) to the party. I had always known his as Frank Parker in high school, and later in life he had grown a bushy beard so I was kind of confused as to who he was. So glad when he shaved off the beard to reveal his handsome face and it was FRANK underneath that. He had the warmest eyes and smile. Much sympathy and love to his family.
