We will always remember Steve as such a devoted and present father. Creating and sewing spectacular costumes, building props and lending a hand whenever needed. We at Broadway Bound will always hold him and his wonderful family dear to our hearts. Our prayers and love to Eleanor, Nick, and Adam.

I've always known Steve because our kids were in the same school. Olivia and Adam were together since kindergarten all the way through high school graduation and now in the same college! But I just recently started to actually talk to Steve since Olivia was in workshop at Broadway Bound a few years ago. We would chat about the kids and their performances and he always praised about Olivia's singing. Imagine getting support like that about your child from someone you barely know. I can truly say, what a nice guy he was! Watching him come to every single performance with his kids until the very end was a man who was selfless, proud and a man who truly loved and adored his family. We wish we had more time to get to know you better and share more performances with our children. God bless you, Steve. You will be missed immensely. May you rest in peace and may God watch over Eleanor, Nick and Adam.

Love, Anna, Sal and Olivia

It hurt my heart so deeply to read of Steve's passing. While we were just classmates, it was evident to me he raised his boys to be strong, gracious gentlemen, who share their passion of the arts with many, leaving us all with a song in our heart and a smile on our face. Isn't this a huge measure of a man's character? It most certainly is... Rest in Peace, Steve and know your legacy is in tact.

There is a line in the movie "Joy Luck Club" that resonates at this time. "I see you," said the often misunderstood Chinese mom to her daughter.

And this strikes a cord. I see you, Steve. In the big and small things. I see you in Eleanor. In her bravery. In her selflessness I see you in Nick and Adam. In their most thoughtful loving ways. I see you in us when our hearts beam with such pride as our kids make magic on that stage. I see you in the dark theatre where I know you will always occupy the best seat in the house.

Godspeed. Rest easy. Much love.

He used to drive Nick and me to rehearsals! Nick and I would be oblivious happy screaming songs at the top of our lungs. Steve would always be making funny quips while supporting our tomfoolery. He is a kind hearted and brave man :) I am so grateful to have been blessed in my life by knowing him and his family.

I met Steve 3yrs ago, and instantly felt like I knew him my whole life. His devotion to his boys and Eleanor was undeniable. You will be truly missed. Rest easy Steve.

Steve has been my friend since we attended Lincoln on County Avenue before our High School was built. We have shared many fun memories over the course of our high school years with many of our classmates. Most recently, I remember him as a dedicated dad and husband. He was always so proud of his family. Steve was always ready to have a laugh, even if it was mostly at my expense, lol, but his sense of humour will be sorely missed. Godspeed.
