You have my most sincere sympathy, in the death of your husband, father, and a very gifted actor. A smile always comes to me, when I think of him with Maynard G.. just one memory of an actor really good at his trade. The Good Lord provides us a way to be together again one day - and may remembering that, and many happy memories help you through the next while.

I am so glad that our mutual friend, Stu Shostak took my suggestion to feature Steve on Stu's internet radio show in November, 2010.

Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. was an iconic television character and Steve played an equally unique role (though, as trivia fans know, for a different reason) on Perry Mason.

Steve confirmed to Stu that he was a distant relative of Al Franken.

For those who missed hearing from Steve in his own words, Stu has archived the interview at http://www.stusshow.com/archives.php?q=Franken.

My sympathy to Steve's family.
August 31, 2012

August 31, 2012
Your loved one brought joy to those whose lives were touched by his art. "The sacrifices to God are a broken spirit; A heart broken and crushed, O God, you will not despise." Psalm 51:17. I hope these words help bring you comfort in the days ahead.

My deepest condolences to Mr. Franken's wife, children, other family members and friends.
Many (most?) did not know his name, but recognized his face each time he appeared on the screen.
He was a lucky man to be able to pursue a career he loved, and luckier still to get work in that field. And as an audience, we were lucky to enjoy his work, too.
