When I was seventeen, Steve inspired me with a lifelong love of international folk dancing, an activity that I pursued on and off for sizty years. I am grateful to him for that.

I was one of the high school students who learned to folk dance with the Heman park group on Saturday nights under Steve's direction. Many of us became life-long dancers and folk music enthusiasts because of his delight in sharing his world culture passion. He had such knowledge and gave it to all who engaged in conversation with him at the dance parties. I had a chat with him last winter when he dropped in at The Olivette Community Center's Monday folk dance group. He had some photos to show us of the 60's group dancing at Heman. Wall to wall participants! He was an organizer and promoter of something special in our time. He will be remembered fondly .

Steve Edison and I were friends since the days of the Folk Federation festivals in Forest Park. My mother also worked at EBS in St. Louis. I visited often and always went upstairs to see him. We even stayed in touch after I moved to California. I will truly miss him.

Steve was our neighbor in Lake Sherwood. He was so excited to have just completed his home solar panel installation after a number of challenges but will now will not enjoy the benefits. Other neighbors have asked about a memorial contribution or similar gesture—could a family member please contact me on this question? My cell number is 314-422-9047. Thank you.

Dear family of Steve Edison,
I’ve been dancing and performed 35 ++ years with IFDA if University City. They have been family to my husband and I for 43 years. Even danced Friday night in. Steve’s barn when he allowed that to happen. He gorgeous costumes have blessed several in our group. Last year he showed up and did two or more dances. It was his life and love.
Performing in Forest Park, the Arch for the VP Fair and Tower Grove Park for the International Institute were all special events in our lives.
Meeting so many volunteers and interesting people inspired much respect.
Thanks to Steve for all his generosity and caring for many cultures and giving it all to us to carry on. Surely he is continuing to dance in his new address now.

Steve lead IFDA folkdancing when I started going in November of 1971. I will always remember him taking me to help teach kids folkdancing and also to model some of his costumes. Those were different times. The last time I saw him was about 5 years or so ago give or take. She was so surprised to see a lot of the old dancers. I'm so sorry for his family. May his memory be for a blessing.

We knew Steve from folkdancing. He did not come often in his later years and basically came to sit and listen to the music and visit with old friends. We will forever be thankful to him for passing his Scandinavian costumes to us. We consider ourselves caretakers of these. He collected a lot of variety of ethnic costumes and he took pride in his collection.
We wish all the best for his family.
