I was sad to hear the news that Steve had passed. I met Steve through the HVAC Industry, Steve was a customer of mine. However, over the years I moved territories and would continue to call on Steve every so often just to say hello. Steve was one of my favorite customers to work with. He was always kind, funny, gracious, fair and had some of the best stories that he would share.
He will surely be missed.
May You Rest In Peace Steve!
God Bless & with our deepest sympathies,
Tammy Stark & Family

I was floored when I heard the news today. I called on Steve for several years; he treated me better than any customer I have ever dealt with. As a young sales rep, he taught me many lessons and guided me as a mentor. I will be forever grateful for my time spent with him over the years in the HVAC Industry.
My family sends our deepest sympathies.

Rest in peace Steve T., you will be missed.

We are so sorry to hear the news.. We are just taken back. My fondest memories were of my cousin Steve's big train layout in the basement of the Johnson St. home. I used to just stare at it for hours when he wasn't there to operate it. To a kid under 10, it was awesome. Aunt Connie, Ted and Lorraine send our deepest sympathies.

I will always remember Uncle Steve as the best conductor of his trains. I was always fascinated with his train set and he loved answering any questions. He was the most kind hearted man I knew. I have never heard him raise his voice once. I am praying for Nanny as I know you are fine and probably have the biggest set of railroad tracks in heaven loaded with children and giving them the best rides ever. The Faillas love you and will miss you

You may not have been my Uncle by blood but you were in every other way. The fond memories of trips to Destin, when I was a child, and working every day together, as an adult, will live with me forever. I will miss your story time at work and your joking, funny self...you will never be forgotten. I love you, Uncle Steve...my “Midda” Steve ❤️
