Deepest sympathy for Steve's family and friends. He will be truly missed by all. He always had a smile and was happiest when out on his bike. He loved being with Alison where I would run into them at the Mohawk House having lunch. Steve was a very special friend. May he rest in peace now that he and Alison have been reunited.
