RIP to the best friend a person could ever hope to have. Steve helped me out after I was injured in an auto accident and convinced me to go back to college He could also make me laugh, which he did many, many times. He will be truly missed and I hope to see him again some day. / Chip Davis / Richmond / Gainesville, FL

I will miss Steve immensely, he was one of my actors for quite a few years, and was a total joy to work with, I loved calling him, no role was ever too small, he was always willing and able. He was actually booked on a shoot this week and I had to let the client know, he had talked to Steve on the phone and said "even though we had not met yet, he was a very very nice guy" and I agree on all accounts, Its so hard to believe his light has gone out, but I know he is doing scenes for God in heaven for sure, Steve you were a total joy and I will miss you very very much

I didn't know Steve personally, but saw him in the reenactments at St. John's Church over the years...he was wonderful! A bright light extinguished too soon!

Barb, Dave, Gary and family; I believe I pnly overlapped with Steve one year at PSU, yet he was memorable in his zest for life to the fullest. May his memories and your faith carry you through the sadness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
