Steve DePorter. What a character. I had the good fortune of being his brother-in-law. He was quite the comedian. Although he had a rough exterior, my estimation of him is that he had a warm, loving heart. He was always available to assist in any way he could. Steve kept a lot to himself, but what he did share was priceless. Always the protector, always inquisitive, and a real gift to our family. I'm going to miss his good humor, his pranks, but most of all, his love and devotion to his wife, Lynn, and his siblings.
