The news of Steves passing has weighed heavy on my heart. He was such a wonderful person, that has left us much too soon. I will cherish the fond memories we shared forever in my heart. In the 45 years we knew one another, you remained the same throughout them all. In my life, I will never know another like you. You, my friend, will be truly missed and your memory a blessing. Fly high, Steve, fly high.
To his children, grandchildren, siblings and other family members, I am so very sorry for your loss. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

To Amy & Adam, I am sorry to hear that your Dad passed away.  He and I were good friends in the late ‘70’s and early 80’s.  We used to go bullhead fishing in E. Syracuse and trout fishing in Nine Mile Creek.  I was there when your parents bought their first home on Kasson Road and when you moved to your grandparent’s house on Taft Road. .  When we hung out, it was always fun.  Red Lobster’s all you could eat crab legs was one of our favorites!  One day out of the blue we went to Pennsylvania for lunch!  We went to the Maple Festival in Marathon and stuffed our faces for $2 each.  We worked together at Omnetics and I picked him up for work every day.  He was very talented woodworker and tin knocker and well liked by everyone.  I’m sorry we lost touch over the years but I always remembered our good times.  He was a wonderful guy and I’m so sorry for your loss.  Please let me know about his memorial service as I’d be honored to attend and share my great memories of your Dad.

I’m really going to miss you Steve. We laughed a few years ago about the time you walked miles to bring me roses when we were in High School. You said well everyone walked everywhere in those days, but I appreciated the effort. We still had more fun things to do in this life, I will see you again my friend

We are so deeply sadden by the passing of Steve. He was unassuming  and a quit man but a man of many talents.  When ever we saw Steve he always had a smile and was very pleasant. We wish we could have lived closer so we could have seen him more. I know he will be missed by many.  We extend our thoughts and prayers to his family.
Love Aunt Grethe & Uncle Bob
