You will be missed very much as a passionate teacher and mentor, a respected scientist, and a dear friend. As my graduate supervisor, you always tried to challenge me to think deeper and work harder. You were always generous with your support, guidance, and time -- I can still remember your tireless help with my scientific writing, and that you never turned down my questions. Steve, I am so grateful for your life as well as the memories working with you in Tallahassee. May you rest in peace.

Where do I start to recall fond memories of the times we have spent with Jean and yourself? All of them revolve around food and fun times together. Firstly, it was curries together during your sabbatical year in London, 1974. Then it was barbecues at your house in Yorktown Heights during David’s 1975 sabbatical year at IBM. Jean and yourself always recalled our daughter turning up to one of them wearing cut-off lacy gloves!, whereas I remember your wonderful singing over the campfire accompanied by you playing the guitar. Then there was the time in Tallahassee when you took to watch the Seminoles playing American football......watch a performance that was; galloping Indians in full war paint, cheerleaders bouncing around, and some rushing and shoving as football players tried to get the ball over the line. Still don’t understand what that was all about!! The other times we visited you and enjoyed your wonderful hospitality at your family lakeside home. And finally, literally, our stay with you both at your holiday apartment in Key West just a few months before Jean’s passing. Such fond memories of a deep and lasting friendship. You will never be forgotten. The only consoling thing is that you are now reunited with Jean, you lifetime partner whom you missed terribly. May both of you now rest in peace together. Much love, Margaret and David

As John Kirtley esteemed highly the human and scientific qualities of Steve, he invited him over to ail 39 to the other end of the IBM building so that I could present our results to him.
I still remember the support and enthusiasm he shared with us in 1991.

We knew Steve very well, first during my one-year stay at IBM in 1980-1981 and then during his successive visits to Grenoble during which we had the opportunity to receive him at our home near Grenoble. His son Marc went to school, for some time, in the college where my wife taught. Later, we met several times in Tallahassee. Steve was a very high-level scientist and, at the same time, a very endearing person. I have just learned of his difficult beginnings in life. Now, thinking of him, we also think of his childhood and his mother.
Let’s raise our glass of wine in memory of Steve von Molnar!

We will miss your sense of humor your great energy and your positive view on the future . You cross many difficult times some coupled to dramatic war period but you have the strenght to cross them with an unique vitality . Florida was your choice certainly for their nice laboratories but also for your love for sunny days with Jean . In Grenoble we keep memories of your efficiency to resolve complex physical problems but also for nice familly meeting where you start to enjoy nice french wine bottle .
Receiving your mails were always stimulating with clear advices . I follow the last one : celebrate my rich life by taken a glass of your excellent wine.
Cher Steve tu nous manques deja .
