Dear Joe & Barb, Lindsay, Jessica, and Haily,
We are so sorry for your loss. We pray for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to release the pain, leaving you with joyous, sweet memories of Steve. May you realize the peace that surpasses understanding in the forthcoming days and months. Because you know Christ and are His, you will not grieve as those who have no hope; rather, your grief will be an expression of your love for Steve and the precious family he leaves, and will exemplify the love and grace of our Heavenly Father. May you feel the embrace of His loving arms.
We love you,
Mark & Laura, Alison and Chloé Prochaska

What a loss for his family and for all of the sooner nation. I met Steve Davis in 1977 when he came to Hugoton Kansas to speak to our jr. high and high school football kids at the Hugoton christian church. He made a great positive impact on a number of kids. My only regret is not writing him earlier to let him know what he did for a lot of kids. He was a great role model for a lot of people both on and off the field. We will all miss him. God's blessing to all his family members. Steve Nelson Hugoton Kansas

I was friends with Steve during his OU days, but in a different manner than most. Steve would come to Easton Heights Baptist Church with his Grandparents back in the middle 70's and that is how we became friends. I was a music student at ORU, played sports at Tulsa Edison (I'm a Tulsa native) and was on the Judo team at ORU. When Steve would come for a visit at Easton Heights we would go get a burger and coke at the burger joint down on Edison Street. We were not close friends, but good buddies when he came around. I knew he was from Sallisaw. Interestingly, I have lived in Poteau for the last nine years where I have served as Minister of Music and Adults at FBC Poteau. I have visited FBC Sallisaw a few times (Bill Aydelotte is a good friend from there) and also have a good friend, Greg Burnsed, who serves at Immanuel Baptist in Sallisaw. May I please send to your family my deepest condolences in this time and may the Peace and Love of God envelop you and give you comfort.

We are all sad and suffering for the loss of our dear friend. Here we are last August at a Tulsa Driller's baseball game. Steve is on the back right and Fran Evans is front on right. They had a wonderful relationship. For years we have enjoyed a personal friendship and working on projects together. Throughout the years he hired many of my students; that was a complement to everyone. He knew just how to get the best out of them, frequently commenting that if I sent them, they would perform. We met often in Jenks for breakfast. We had plans to attend the OU spring game together; to enjoy our time and to talk over the latest big project that is so-so near completion. His e-mail to me in part last week: "How are you? I hope you are well and that your silence is due to being busy rather than dealing with any health issues.” (Steve was aware of some difficulty that I have been going through...and like a friend, wanted to know how I was doing). “We need to get together when time permits. I miss discussions about all things important". He goes on with a lengthy discussion about current progress. How sad I am we did not have that meeting. No question, a great quarter back and two national championships...that's impressive, but pales to the kind of person he was. One of our favorite sidelines...I would remind him yes, he was big time - he played against Texas at OU...but would ask if he had played the Oklahoma State Penitentiary inmates. With a wry smile I would make some kind of comment that I had played against the inmates while at Eastern Oklahoma State College in both football and basketball. He would laugh as he often did and agree. Steve ol' pal, I know where you are and rejoice in the day I can join you and all those close to me.
Your pal, Henry
