Many memories of Steve from the neighborhood and the Vikings football team in the sixties. We moved to Seattle in the 70's and only saw Steve a couple of times since then but remember him fondly. Condolences to all of his family and friends.

Steve was a member of the Yorkville Wings roller hockey NYC wide champions in 1961 and he scored the( 6 overtime periods ) winning goal in our 4-3 victory over the Jackson Heights Hawks.

So sad to hear the passing of one of our Yorkville gang and my sincerest condolences to his family.

May he rest in peace!

We were very sorry to learn of Steve's passing , and we extend sincere condolences to the family. We go back to the 1960s with Steve - happy memories as football teammates, neighborhood friends, trips to Davy's Lake, on and on. As our sons grew up in the 1980s, we shared Little League coaching, end of season dinners at St. Stephen's, and watching the boys play in a downtown league.

Later in life, when the weather was good, he could be found on the corner of 81st and York, enjoying his cigar and chatting / laughing with friends and neighbors. We called it Steve's corner. We miss him. Rest in peace, Steve.
