Steve was perhaps the kindest man I have ever known. He and his wife Kathy gave me and my *eleven* cats shelter briefly through a transition in my life. Unemployed and desperate during the downturn, Steve helped me to look for a job, with relentless determination, sending me sometimes two or three leads a week. Through the depression I suffered, his kind eyes and encouragement and lovely bear hugs brought me comfort and hope and a badly needed sense of security.
Kathy, I adored seeing how much in love you two are. May you feel that love forever, and may that love bring you comfort.
To eternal peace and everlasting life, beautiful soul.

We were so luck that Kathy and Chris shared Steve with us for 26 years. Jen and I knew within a minute of his interview that we wanted to hire him. Thank goodness we still had Marcy and China to figure out we could use our hiring authorities.
Chuck was a true problem solver, with great people skills. Figuring out how to give folks everything they wanted, when we never had enough space, or the right space. He was always a team player!
Hannah and I loved coming and having dinner at PDK with Steve ( Kathy ) while Chris was taking one of his flight lessons. We will never forget them opening their house on Christmas.
