Almost three years later you are still missed. You will live through our memories and tall tales.forever. We miss you as much today as the day so many of us lost you. Thank you for blessing Damon and I. Knowing you has enriched my life, and losing you has left a void. No one will ever fill!!!!!
we think of and miss Steven a lot. Having his golden retriever Moses in our lives and a part of our family is a constant blessing and reminder. We were all fortunate to have Steven touch our lives, and we are better off for it- We pray for him and his family constantly and feel lucky to have him watching and protecting us from above- lou&carter
I knew Steven well and I think of him almost daily. He was a great guy and will be greatly missed by my wife and me. He always made us laugh when we were down. God Bless his family.
I saw Gus a few weeks ago and the first thing I thought of was Steven. I didn't know him very well but the few times I was with him he was always funny and sweet.
Love and Prayers to Gus and the rest of Steven's family!
With deepest sorrow I will pray that Gus and the rest of the Anderson Family will find peace in Knowing that though I had not seen Steve in years I remeber him as described a kind soul with an infectious smile. He will be sorely missed.

UNCW wouldn't have been the same without you. You brought a smile to so many faces with your stories, antics and quick-witted remarks. You’re legend – and will always be remembered.
Love you man, Morgan
Reading all of these nice things that people have written to and about Steven makes me wish that I knew him better. The common thread seems to be his love for life and his infections laugh and smile. All of which will hopefully be things we try to carry on in his honor.
My heart goes out to the Anderson Family and to Kristi Laws. Steven was so lucky to have such great family and friends. He will truly be missed.
Kristi...I'm just a phone call away.
I will love you all my life. You will always live on in my heart and will never be forgotten. I can't wait to see your beautiful smile and feel your warmth again. Thank you for all the love and joy you brought to my life.I know I will see you again! Until then, I LOVE YOU, Darlin'.
What a "guardian angel" you will be! My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Steven touched my life when I thought it not possible. He is larger than life and will always be the shining star that I want to follow. He was always true, kind and encouraging. He constantly reminded me not to be too hard on myself, and always knew how to make me laugh when I felt like crying. And made a good time even better. He was my best friend. He was everyone's best friend! My love and prayers always to the Anderson Family. -Steven, love you Darl'n!
What is Dying?
A ship sails and I stand watching till he fades on the horizon and someone says, "he is gone, Gone where? He is still as large as when I saw him. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, and just at the moment when someone at my side says, "he is gone, There are others who are watching him coming, and other voices take up a glad shout, "There he comes!" and that is dying.
Steven was truly a gift. He never went a day without making it count, and his laughter and great spirit were instantly contagious. We will all miss him dearly, but will never forget how wonderful a friend he was to each of us. My deepest and most heartfelt condolences go out to his entire family.
Steven was larger than life. He truly was one of a kind with a heart and soul that will always live on. His smile and laugh will be engrained in my memory forever. It's impossible to think of Steven Anderson and not smile. He will be missed!!!!
My heart goes out to you Gus, Blanche, the Anderson family, and his many, many friends.
my condolences to Gus and the rest of the family. Steven was such a warm, friendly person who always had something positive to add to every situation he encountered. He lived a full life in such a short time here on this earth, but he will be sorely missed.
Steven was a good friend, a hard worker and fun to be around. I was very sorry to hear of his death. We shared many lunches and conversations. My heartfelt sympathy to Gus and the entire family.
All my love for you and your family. I have never heard a bad word spoken of you. Only the testimonials of people who all of you have touched. All of you are in my thoughts daily. Let us remember the good things. Good bye to a good friend.
You touched my life in a way I will never forget. I wouldn't be the same person without having known you. You, your family, and friends are in my prayers.
I can remember the first time I met Steven. Of course he was out with Doug, Eric,Gus, David and Scott. My brother,Joey introduced us and from that day Steven never forgot who I was. He always had a smile and a kind word.I remember seeing him at the Sundries and telling my daughter that she could grow up to marry someone like him... To Blanche,Gus,Christy,Doug,and his multitude of other friends - hang in there, for Steven is always with you(us) -Godspeed my fine friend !!!!!!
I so admired your love for life. You always lived in the moment. You were a friend and fraternity brother.
We shall see each other again one day.
My friend Steven, I do not like many people because of their pettiness and insincerity, which were personality traits you did not possess. You at times were my inspiration, to be better than I am, and other times a comrade when I was in need of help.... and if we wanted to get in some trouble, their was an inviting barstool for us whereever we ended up. We understood each other better than people knew. In the 15 years we were friends I never met a funnier, crazier, better looking, pleasant fellow. I really like you... you were what is best in men. Michelle and I are both beside ourselves with grief.
So I bid you farewell my Brother, my Captain, my King. Have a blessed and safe journey.
We haven't been able to think clearly since since learning Steven passed away - it is so surreal. The one thing we find peace in is knowing that Pete (Mike's dad) will take care of Steven, show him the ropes, and with them together heaven will never be the same! Our thoughts and prayers are with you - we love you! Peyton & Mike
Steven had the rare ability to make people stop, look, and listen, all of which put a smile upon your face. His unique desire to live life to the fullest will be sorely missed and remembered. To the Anderson family and close friends, know that you are loved and in the thoughts and prayers of so many people that loved Steven. God bless you all.
Steven was the rare person you could meet once, but remember for the rest of your life. I count myself lucky to have known him for the brief time I did. My thoughts are with the family.
My heart goes out to the family. This is a very sad time for us all. Steven lives on in our hearts and will never be forgotten. 704-566-8265
Don't Cry My Friends
Don't cry anymore tears for me,
I am at peace; I' finally free
Like the eagle in the sky,
I'm soaring so please don't cry.......
I know you love me,
I love you too,
But my time was over,
was finally through.
I have ascended to a better place
which is not confined by time and space.
to those that loved me,
I did not fall,
I only succumbed to a higher call.
Do not mourn me,
I am with you still
I'll be with you always,
Gus, Leslie, Christy, Family and friends.. you will be in my thoughts and prayers..
To the man who convinced me to give up a baseball scholarship to play rugby, drink hard, live large, and be real no matter what, I miss you already! Thank you for letting me be a small part of the legend!!! You still live in all of us, Bro!
I haven't seen Steven in a very long time. I moved to San Diego shortly after college, but, many of my friends here know Steven through the stories I have shared with them. He was so good and kind and generous to me. It was an honor and a privlege to have known him.
Steven will be forever missed...he was an old and dear friend of mine.
I only had the pleasure of meeting you during a few brief events, but you always had a ray of happiness around you. May that ray continue to shine.
Steve was a true friend. Please know how very special he was.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Steven's family. Steven was such a fun and warm person. Everytime I think about all the fun times I had at UNC-W, memories of Steven come into mind. He was thought of so often, even though I haven't seen him in 4 years. He will be missed but his memory will live forever.
You were like a brother to me. The good times we all had are too many to count. Your infectious laugh and the ways you made everyone else laugh will be greatly missed. Steven, you will be in my heart until we meet again.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Anderson family.
We are so blessed to have had the pleasure of enjoying Steven’s friendship. He was an incredible man with a wonderful spirit and unique love of life. Everyone was drawn to him, as he would fill a room with energy and laughter. He will be greatly missed and remembered. Our love and support are with his family and loved ones.
Steven, your contagious smile, animated laughter and free spirit will forever be remembered in the hearts of everyone that had the luck of knowing you. My deepest sympathy to family and friends.
Immediately after hearing the news from Jeff Tuesday morning I drove home from work and rummaged through old photographs to see Steven's face again. I remembered the last time I had spoken with him was years ago at my wedding, so I put in the tape. As anyone who knew Steven knows, I spotted his stance and swagger through the crowd, and then, he turned to the camera and there was that smile and then his head thrown back with that laugh and a wave "Hey Mary!! Love ya sweety".
He was a treasure.
Blanche and Gus, you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday.
Anderson - We love you, brother. Your spirit was like was no one elses. We'll always miss you.
Steven, you will live on forever...in the memories, in the stories, in the hearts of all of us who loved you. Thank you for shining your light on my life.
When Steven walked into a room, also walked in the sun, fun and a love of life and people that saturated the entire place. He was such a blessing to all he came in contact with and he will truely be missed, although remembered and loved always. I feel very blessed the good Lord allowed our paths to cross and honored to share a part of such a wonderful persons life.
When I spoke to Danny Morganelli, he told me that William Vaughn had called to say, "...I have some bad news...one of our comrades has fallen...it's Steven." That statement alone seems to stop time. That's why we are all so blessed to have the precious memories of Steven's smile and personality. May God watch over him and his family and friends.
We will miss you, and we cherish all of our memories of you. You will always be apart of our lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Gus, we are here for you now and always.
Love Harrison and Maria
It doesn't matter whether you have been somewhere 6 minutes, 6 hours, 6 days or 6 years, but was the place better for you having been there. For Steve, it is a thundering yes! To quote Albert Schweitzer - "In everyone's life, at some time, the inner fire burns out. It is then burst into flames by the encounters of another human being. We sould all be thankfull for those who rekindle our inner spirit." This is Steven Anderson's legacy. You will always be with us and will forever be missed!
Steven, the memory of your laughter will live on forever. You will never be forgotten! My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who miss you.
My heart just breaks for Steven's family and friends. He will truly be missed. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family.
Oh man, how we will all miss you. Your love for life and your charismatic energy touched all those you knew. You where the best and like a brother to Kale and I. We will always miss you and will always remember your smiles, grins and great times we had together. What a good man but, God must have missed you too. We love you, brother.
We love you and you will be dearly missed. May your spirit live on.
My memories of Steven are all great ones. I am heart-broken, as I'm sure everyone Steven touched is. My thoughts and prayers are with Blanche, Frank, Frank, and Gus. I love you all.
Your love for people and friends made you a one of a kind all the times I spent with you were always good times and the stories and tales will never be forgot love always, Polite
We will always remember Steven for his love for life, his fun-loving personality, and his beautiful smile! Where Steven was there was laughter and fun! What a blessing his life was for so many people. Our prayers are for the comfort of your family and the Peace of God that lifts you up in times of sadness.
