As long-ago classmates of Steve's at Penn State, we wanted to take a moment to send our condolences to Steve's wife, daughters, extended family and work colleagues. Steve was a kind and talented person and will surely be missed.

I have known Steve over ten or more years through activities in the technical committees of ASHRAE. During those times, we often were together in a dining group where we got to share not only professional but social issues, and we became friends. I also worked occasionally in support of Steve on consulting engineering projects from time to time. He was always a complete joy to work with and to be around. A perfect mix of professionalism and cheerfulness. A great sense of humor. I will miss him very much, and can only imagine how great his loss is to his family. My deep condolences.

Mr. Severini was a good man and Leader. I enjoyed working under him and one thing I can truly say was that he never mind taking the time out of his way to help me. He always offered me good advice and kept it 100. He will be greatly missed.

Steve was such a great co-worker. While I never worked directly under him, he still took the time to help me with any questions I had. He always offered good solid design advice, and he always made time to help other engineers. He was my go to steam expert helping me with many projects including the infamous prison. He will be greatly missed.

Steve was an outstanding student. It seems like it was not so long ago that he was at Penn State doing his very best to prepare for a career in architectural engineering.
So sad that a brilliant career was cut short.

Steve was one of the most honorable men I've ever known. I mean that with all sincerity. I was fortunate enough to work very close with him. He taught me practically everything I know as an engineer. I will always hold him in very high regard. The best engineer I know!
