Steve and I were classmates in senior year English class. He sat in front of me and we spent more time laughing than paying attention to what was going on in class. Will never forget his smile and his laugh. Here’s to the Class of ‘75! 💜

My deepest sympathies to Steve's family! Steve was very passionate about his craft and had the heart of a teacher!
His passion was infectious and I always learned so much from him! I was looking forward to this years classes, just because of him.
I will miss him!

Steve was one of the Great Ones !! He not only touched so many peoples lives thru his training classes but also by his kindness and generosity to everyone he met. I have lost a true friend and mentor that could never be replaced. My heart hurts for his family that he loved so dearly. May he rest in peace. We will meet again my friend.

I have known Steve, for what seems like, my entire life. My parents had known Diane for years due to the bowling alley and as far as I know, that is how we met Steve :) . The relationship I kept with Desiree over the years (being a few years younger), led to me babysitting Devin (grand-son) when I was just in middle school and as I grew older, I got to know Steve (& Diane) on a more personal, "grown-up" level. From countless birthday parties for the kids & events held at their house, to the bowling alley, to just running into each-other in our every day lives, I have countless memories that include Steve, all of which make me smile. He always asked about my parents and my children, he always had a smile on his face and he was ALWAYS good for giving the BIGGEST BEAR HUGS whenever he saw me. I am truly heart broken to know that he is no longer with us, but I feel very fortunate to have been just a small part of his life, for all of these year's. All of my love goes out to Diane & his family during this difficult time. He will be truly missed.

I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work side by side with Steve. His drive, work ethic and knowledge was second to none. No matter how busy Steve was he would always take time out of his day to answer his phone and help with whatever question was asked of him. He loved his job he loved life he loved the collision repair industry but far greater than those he truly loved his family. We both knew anytime either of us needed something, the other was there. He was a great friend and will truly be missed. I hope you “find your own kind of paradise”

I met Steve early in my career at I-Car classes. I always enjoyed his classes as they were entertaining and informative. He was great at holding your interest and keeping you engaged. Later, I would work along side him at Master Collision. During this time I got to know him very well. He was a mentor, teacher, leader and most importantly a friend. I always admired that he wasn't afraid to say if he didn't know something, but he would definitely find the answer for you.
Steve was one of the kindest, most giving people I know. He seemed to know everything about everyone he came across, and never met a stranger.
His knowledge and passion for the collision industry was only surpassed by his love of his family. He will be deeply missed by both. May he rest in peace. This is how I remember him (from 2008); always on the phone answering questions from anyone. Always happy to spread his knowledge.

Many years ago the Laszlo family were neighbors of ours in the Glenbrook section of Stamford, CT. Steve was always a great guy. I can remember Steve and his dad spending countless hours prepping Steve's car for a very custom paint job. Not surprisingly, it came out really sharp. Although I haven't seen Steve in decades, the many tributes posted here show what a solid person he was. I was saddened to learn of his passing and extend my deepest condolences to his family.

To Diane and Laszlo family - my deepest condolences...

Steve was a class act. A man, I highly respected and trusted. An industry leader who selflessly worked to make the industry better. One think about Steve, he was ALWAYS working and teaching.

You will be sorely missed, Rest in peace and may your family be comforted by your memory.

Diane and family, my deepest sympathies to you all. Steve was one of the kindest most giving gentlemen I have ever had the pleasure to meet and work with, always willing to help with whatever came along. He has influenced an industry in so many positive ways as he has everyone he has touched in life, may he live on forever in our hearts, as he will always have a place in mine.

Having known Steve for 30 plus years, I think we lost a Pillar in the Collision Industry, He was a coworker at one time, friend and a wealth of knowledge and information. Diane and family, our deepest sympathies .
