I just discovered Steve's obituary while surfing the net; wondering whatever became of him. This is so sad for me as Steve was my very first boyfriend when I was in high school and he attended city college. My mother used to drive me to school; Steve would be there waiting for me in his tuck and rolled, 53 Chevy. We'd spend the whole day together goofing around until it was time to go home. I don't think my mother ever found out. We loved to dance together and spent many weekends driving to Harmony Park for the Surf Stomps, dancing to Dick Dale and the Deltones. We dated for about year, then I moved away to Riverside and it was history. But, I must say, he will always be in my thoughts as my very first. I'm so happy to know that he became a wonderful husband to you and a loving friend to all. RIP, Steve.
I ran into the announcement of Steve's passing, because I wanted to contact him regarding my re-location to San Diego area.I had lost touch with Steve for many years. My sympathies to Suzanne his wife and family. Steve and I were very close in High School - first boyfriend. We used to surf at Huntington Beach and I was dating him when he went into Navy boot camp. He told me of a women he was falling in love with in the 90s and I am so happy they married and he found his soul-mate. We will all miss him. Elaine Farrell Munson
I met Steve in 1964 and we became friends instantly. We became surfing buddies, went to a lot of dances in those days, and had some great times. After we both spent 4 years in the Navy, we took a road trip together across the U.S. as far as Vermont where I hit a deer and while the car was being repaired, we hitchhiked to New York City, stopping at a Rock Festival along the way, then back to check on the car. Since it wasn't ready we hoofed it to D.C. Many lasting memories with a wonderful human being. I didn't realize until I heard of his passing, how much his friendship meant to me. Steve, you will be missed until we meet again. And we can do "the jump" together!
One of our favorite clients and dog (Cody). Steven will be missed by all at the Eye Clinic for Animals. With our deepest sympathy.
Although I had not known Steve for many years, I knew right away he is a great person, husband and friend. He and his smile will be greatly missed. Rest in peace.
Steve was the best....a great co-worker in our years with Pacific Bell, and a true friend for over 30 years. We had good times together, and spent a lot of time on the phone keeping in touch. Steve was blessed when he found Suzanne, who provided him the best years of his life. Our heart goes out to Suzanne, his family, and friends. I know we will meet him again in Heaven.
A classy gentleman and friend. My condolences to the family and friends on this tragic loss. Lot's of memories from the old Site Management days.
We had the pleasure of traveling with Steve and Suzanne to New Zealand. They were a such a loving couple and we had a great time with them. Steve was indeed a special man. Our hearts go out to Suzanne, his friends and family.
You were one of the nicest, kindest, most positive people I've met in my life, Steve! May you be at peace, watching over your beautiful family. You were a rare breed and will be missed for years to come.
My deepest sympathy to your family my brother. I will never forget you Steve nor your friendship that we shared during our time at Trade Street. May you rest in the Kingdom of our Lord. Semper Fidelis Brother! - Sil Martinez
