Steve was a classmate of mine when I was Bonnie Adams all the way through elementary school and through High School; he was also our newspaper carrier and a good friend. We often walked home from elementary school together. May God bless each one of Steve's family and feel the power of the loving comfort of our Heavenly Father!!

I am proud to have known Steve while volunteering at the VA Hospital. There wasn't a better man than Steve. Even though he had serious medical issues, he always kept a smile on his face. Steve will be missed by all.
