I went to school with Steve and was sad to read of his passing. I remember him as very quiet, shy and his curly hair. My sympathies to his family!

I am so sad to hear about Steve. He was my very first friend. He, Penny, and Cecil, were like my brothers and sister, and I spent many happy days playing with them. The first 9 years of my life were spent as their next door neighbor, and I have such fond memories of those days. I will never forget you all.

Love and prayers,
