Teri and Chad, we just learned of Steve’s passing and wanted to express our deepest sympathy. It has been many years since the Aquahawks, but one of our fond memories is visiting with you and Steve during those long weekend meets. You were a wonderful couple who were admired by all on the club. You were so happy together and always willing to help. Oh, and Chad you are a pretty great guy, too.

Steve was a man who enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. When you were around him you always had a good time. I will miss him especially that little giggle of his. I will miss our family reunions and our boat rides together. Rest in peace dear cousin.
Til we meet again.
My condolences to Teri , Chad, and Ginger Prayers for all the family.

Jennifer called me over the weekend with the news of Steve's passing. I am sorry for your loss. Teri, please e-mail of call me once things settle down. 913-768-7875. I am in Lenexa now. My favorite memory was when I fell through my deck and you guys came to my rescue. I was a little afraid when Steve went home for the chain saw. He also always impressed me with his command of Mollie.

Teri - I was with a group of trade unionists that traveled to Hungary. I have many photos with Steve in them and would be happy to share them with you. He was a great trade unionist and cared deeply for working men and women. My condolences to you and your family.

Steve with Teri taught my husband and I a lot about home renovations and home decorating when I car-pooled with Teri to Topeka. Steve was a few years older and we always marveled at his knowledge of things like fishing. Steve also educated us on how union reps operated. What we shared in common was our beloved Jayhawks and parking at one of their rental properties before games. My regret is that I was not able to meet up with them in Florida. Teri, thank you for your kindness and may God be with you.
