I am grateful to have known and worked with Stephen. He was thoughtful, kind and had so much patience.
He always made time to address a question or problem, often stopping whatever he was working on to lend a hand.

So sorry for your lost. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.

I worked with Stephen for the last 10 years. I live in California and he would help me way past 5 PM EST. That was the type a guy he was. He always went the extra mile to help me or anyone.

The Konica Minolta Sensing family will sorely miss him.

God bless.
