You will truly be missed Steve. Enjoy your peace with your beautiful daughter and father. You will be thought of often for your kind smile and humor. I am sorry to his mother and Erin and Cody you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember meeting Steve shortly after the accident of the USCG-1432 in February 1979. He was a close friend of my brother, John B. Tait who along with three others, perished in that accident. I again saw him at the 20th reunion of that accident and he had told me he returned to the Coast Guard pilot training. He was a wonderful person and I will always carry fond memories of him. Be at peace my friend... You will be missed!

I knew Stephen as "Mr. Berniche". He was beloved by his enlisted crews and we flocked to maintenance to see if there was room on his plane as soon as his name was posted on the flight schedule. Long before CRM, there were smart pilots that used their crews effectively, and Steve was one of them. You were never safer in the air than in the seat behind him or in the water with him over head.
fair winds and following seas, LT.

Steve was a great guy. I always enjoyed crossing paths with him in Gitmo, Mobile and E-city. He had a great sense of humor.

Stephen is a man I will always remember and honor! He was a dear friend of my late brother, Brad Tait, who died serving our country while in the USCG off Cape Cod in 1979, along with 3 others and one brave survivor. Stephen's zest for life, sincerity of heart, and passion for life was inspiring to my entire family during such a dark chapter in our lives. Speak often of those fond memories - as they will continue to enrich our lives with his memory! Love, Beth in NH
