I’m so sorry to hear the news of Uncle Steve’s passing. He was much to young, but now he’s with his love again. He will be not only missed but celebrated by all those who loved him.
I first met Steve in 1970 shortly before he became my brother in law. Very fond memories of his love of music and his excitement at dating Kathy. He will be greatly missed.
