Steve has been cremated. His stated wish was "no public viewing, no service, and no sandwiches." Please direct memorials to Steve's family to be divided among his favorite charities.

Steve's loves included his family, pets, friends, neighbors, history, co-workers, fishing, and new friends. Remember him by being thoughtful to family, friends, and strangers. Be kind to kitties, pet your dog, and don't forget birds and squirrels -they are neighbors too. We are thankful for our time together, sorrowful for what may have been, and faithful one day our journey together will continue.
