Steve's memory lives on in the hearts of his children and the laughter of his grandchildren. He was a wonderful brother in law and fond memories of him will bring smiles and not tears. He was always very kind to everyone lucky enough to have known him. I will never forget how much fun we had dancing at Tom's wedding. He will be missed but never forgotten.

I worked with Steve at Home Depot and I am really going to miss him. When it was slow we would try to guess the name of the song playing on the speaker system. Cindy Maciatek

Steve, I'll never forget the times we had at McDonalds. You were a great worker and good buddy. Steve loved listening to the radio, guessing the songs, and we had many talks while at work about movies, life, and family. I will miss you and keep your memory alive in my heart forever. Condolences to his family, Alicia, who worked with us too. God bless you all.
