Dear Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain and Amy,

I was so sad to hear about Steven’s passing. While Steven and I didn’t keep up much after high school, he was such an important friend to me growing up.

I have many happy memories of he, George, and I riding bikes, looking for minnows, and hanging out during the time my family was at the Point.

And then of course our many years playing together in band. My favorite musical memories are the years we played Taps at Town Hall during the Memorial Day parade. He was the picture of the perfect trumpeter and I was always happy to be his echo!

And thank goodness he was my lab partner in AP bio...he helped me get through unpleasant tasks. The best part of that class was the trip we took to the Chewonki Foundation- we all laughed A LOT.

Finally, it was a joy to see him at our 30th reunion. We had a chance to talk a long while and it was terrific. I am so sorry he is gone and I wish you all peace and comfort during this very hard time.

With love, Chrissy Bicknell

Dear Chamberlain family,
I am so saddened to hear of Steven’s passing and my heart goes out to all of you during this difficult time.

My memories of Steven go way Chris pointed out, our class of ‘86 was small and very connected. Losing Steven feels surreal and such an immense loss.

Steven had such a dry wit and warm heart...he was always able to make us laugh from math class with Ms. L to biology with Ms. R—with one look across a room he had many of us in stitches.

Thinking of him, like many others, I remember his love of music and innate ability to pick up any instrument and play beautifully...a talent which he shared selflessly. Above all, Steven had such a big heart and spirit ...always evident through the twinkle in his eyes...I only wish there was more time to catch up again and reconnect.

Chamberlain family, we are sending all good thoughts and prayers your way. Steven, you are missed ,my dear friend.

Such sad news and I am sending my best to the Chamberlain family... We Yarmouth kids go WAY back... My earliest memory of Steve was how BRAVE he was in Mrs Beatys class ( was this second grady or third... yikes...) He was just diagnosed with diabetes... he stood up in front of the class and showed us all about doing the insulin thing, by injecting i in an orange... I remember thinking how brave he was as we all watched in awe of learning something so new. He was always so kind, and always had a smile on his face... our class was close, most of us were preschool to HS graduation :) I also used to spend time with him at University of Maine Portland in the library studying and reminiscing... I am sorry that I did not see him in the past few years... Such a tragic loss so early... I smile when I see these photos... I was having dinner with my mom and dad last night and the piano player started in with "Imagine" By John Lennon- Our 1986 class song... His face immediately flashed in my mind... Symbolic. Godspeed my old friend ... Light and Love... Chrissi
