I first met Steve, while working in Assembly at Micron. He was interviewing current employees for the then new Fab2 positions, as Micron was coming out of their first lay-offs of 1985. I worked on D shift with Steve for several months. I watched him grow with Micron. Steve was always very approachable, whenever I had questions about the company and his strategic moves, he would always, always take the time to respond to my emails. Steve and I emailed one another quite a bit, over the years. His team meetings were great. I loved to listen to him speak. When he started telling us about the adrenalin rush he got from flying, I asked him if he ever told his Mother about flying for the head rush, laughing he said a strong NO. I was laid-off at Micron after 23 years; however we continued to email one another over the years and kept in touch. I would still send him emails to wish him happy birthday most every year. We recently were in touch about Steve taking my husband flying as my husband is an Air Force Veteran and both shared the love of flying.
His business advice of …”be patient”, is something that I will carry with me for a long time.
Steve traded in mechanical wings for the wings of an angel. “May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face", forever.
