Uncle Steve was such a sweet man used to take mom (Julie) to visit him. Mom always called him Stevie. Sending you all my thoughts and prayers ?.

My sincerest, deepest condolences, and sympathy to all his family.
There is so much that I could say about Steve. From the first moment I met Steve many years ago he was always so welcoming and kind to me and Peggy. He was a strong solid man with a good heart and a strong sense of deep inner peace that few people posses. I can’t say wether he was a man of the world but he certainly was a worldly man. Rest In Peace
I will miss him and will always remember him.
