To honor Steve: Be kind and helpful to family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. Make something beautiful. Mentor a young person. Plant something. Get outdoors and exercise. Visit an art gallery. Cook a great meal. Read a good book. Wherever you go and whatever you do, dress impeccably, be generous with your time and patience, and always leave things better than you found them.

You will be missed, Steve. I have wonderful memories of growing up with you, at school, at church, and in the neighborhood. I'm so happy to learn you led a full, enriching life, but not surprised. Sadness reigns.

Steve was such a nice guy! He was just like his father.  I had Mr. Wirth at WK and then got to know Steve in high school. He treated everyone the same. Never heard him raise his voice or get riled up.  Smart. Decent. Upstanding. We need more like him, but now there is one less.

Very sorry for his family.  They have lost a great role model. My condolences to each of them.

I do not believe that I had ever talked with Steve while at Central. I did know that he was a tall, well dressed and intelligent individual. My condolences to his family for his passing.
