The memory of my long relationship with Steve as his patient is the strongest. I remember his and Donna's wedding and singing with him in Barbershoppers. I have only the fondest memories of him and his kindness to me. He was one of the nicest men I've known.
My heart is full of joy and Thanks to the family friend who made my Daddy 's Guest Book Permenent . Forever Grateful.
Dear Donna and family,
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you. Although I only had the pleasure to be with you and Steve just one time, I was made to feel part of the family. Every time my Bob would speak of Steve it was with a smile and the utmost respect. He so enjoyed telling of times he and Steve were together be it church or harmonizing together. Donna, you and Steve made a wonderful difference in Bob's life and for this I thank you. Just know you and your family are in my prayers,
Joyce Curl, Salisbury NC
Dear Donna and family,
Our prayers and love go out to you and all the family. We all remember Steve's gentle hands in the office and his warm smiles and hugs whenever we saw him. Stay strong, as he will be with you, watching over you as always.

Dear Donna, Mark and Cyndi,
If we could place all of Steve's acts of kindness end to end it would stretch from here to the moon and back again – no one can match all that he did for so many people – Steve was a totally selfless person. That smile was so precious and was his way of extending his love and concern and empathy for all who came in contact with him. Steve was forever lending his love for mankind to all who touched his world. Together, Donna and Steve were an incomparable team, an extension of the aura of Howard and Ginny Swyers and how their lives touched so many people and especially children, of which I am but one of many. It's as if Howard and Ginny passed the baton to Donna and Steve in a seamless manner like in a relay, not like a race, but in a quest for raising ones standards to as high as it can be, whether it is having a nearly perfect attendance record at Rotary or inspiring a young person to seek the highest and best they can in their lives. And now it is up to you, Donna to carry on with the support of Mark and Cyndi and friends. Donna, we know you have lost your soul-mate, but although he is not there physically, rest assured, he is there on your shoulder, lending you his support and love, today and every day. Stand tall and be strong, and lean on all of your many friends and the Lord when you feel the need. We send our love to you and your family. Remember your family also extends from here to the moon and back again. I had hoped to fly over from the Bahamas for the service, but just couldn't make it, but I will be there in spirit.
Love, Priscilla and Robert Benner
We send our prayers to Donna and family. Both Steve and Donna made a huge impact on my life as a teenager. Steve was my first dentist and I still have one of his fillings - done when he first opened his practice in WPB. His love of God, music, and his family was an inspiration. His was truly a life well lived! May our Lord continue to bless his family with sweet memories of Steve.
As a fellow colleague, I came to know Steve at the Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic. I attended many classes with Steve over the past 20 years.
Though I was young enough to be his son, we just seemed to "hit it off." Steve and I had so many wonderful conversations at the Research Clinic.
One of the many things that impressed me about Steve was his PASSION for dentistry (and life). He was in his 80s, and not only still practicing, but still LEARNING. He LOVED it! I often told him that he was an inspiration and that I hope I'm able to work into my later years as he has.
He ALWAYS had a smile on his face. He listened to my stories with unwavering engagement.
At risk of not being eloquent, I'll simply say that Steve was just the coolest guy. I consider myself lucky to have known him. Rest in peace, Steve.
A believer. A husband. A father. A teacher. A leader. A humble, caring,and loving person. My friend.
Steve had a huge heart for others and was truly a light in our world - sharing God's love with everyone he met. Our prayers go out to Donna, Mark, Cindy and all the family at this time of sorrow and mourning. Just know that he is now singing with the angels. We will sorely miss you Steve !
Blessings and love always,
Mrs.A and family My heart is sadden today to hear the news of Dr.A,as a believer in Christ it comforts me to know he is home with the Lord.He will be deeply missed!! I"m so thankful he trained me to assisst at his chair side. My love and prayers are with you and your family.
Uncle Steve was always generous with his time & talents. He made my life much better and I will always miss him. My Love & prayers are with all of you.
It was with a sad heart on hearing that Dr A had passed away.
I'm so glad I had a chance to write him recently to let him know the impact he had on PBHS athletic programs in the late 50's and early 60's with his financial, moral, and dental support.
I personally got to thank him for bringing back my smile by fixing two chipped teeth after football season.
When I went to boot camp a few years later the Army Dentist told me the two teeth were the best match he had ever seen.
He will be missed by all who crossed his path
May he rest in peace.
Jerry Browning-PBHS, '58
What a wonderful man with a welcoming spirit that made you feel you'd known him for years after only just meeting him. Brian and I send our love and prayers to you, Mark, your dear mother and family. Brian would always say, "Look! It's Steve!" When his commercial, with his great smile would come on tv. We'll never forget him.
I had the pleasure of handling their mortgage several years ago. I thought Mr and Mrs Aliapoulois were the nicest people. I drove out to their house several times to assist in the process and they told me lots of interesting stories about their many years together here in West Palm Beach. I am very sorry to hear he has passed. God Bless him. I will pray for Donna.
Dear Donna -- We were regular guests in your home during our work with the FHHS Youth for Christ Club, in the early 70's. As we watched you & Steve serving God together, happily involved in your children's lives, so warmly hospitable -- you had a great impact on our young marriage! I will remember Steve's big smile, big voice, big hug, and big heart.
It was very special to see you both again at TKA's musical events in recent years -- still holding hands, still smiling! You two have blessed many lives over the years -- ours included. May our Father fill your heart with His peace, with thanksgiving, and with deep joy as you trust in Him -- He is your very Present Help in every time of need. Our love to you
As our neighbor in Lake Clarke Shores we have fond memories of Steve. Anne sitting on his kitchen stool on a Sunday afternoon with a sore tooth or Tom working on Steve's Toyota in ouging with the angelsr front yard. And he always had a smile as he walked down the aisle of Bethesda singing with his mighty voice.He is now singing with the angels. Miss you, Anne and Tom Silbernagel
May his memory be eternal. Donna, may God be with you in your time of grief. "Doc" was a good man and a good friend.
Bill and Nancy Manikas

Dear Donna, Mark & Cindi,
With such fondness and loving memories of your dear Steve. I do hold those memories very dear and near... Dr. A was a wonderful choir director for oh.. so many years---such dear friends......
May his memory be eternal.....
--Charlene Eliopulos--Aurora, CO
I will forever have fond memories of Dr. A (and his family), since I spent a goodly number of hours during my high school years camped out on the floor of his family room. Always a gentleman, great sense of humor, devoted husband, father and grandfather and, most importantly, a shining example of what a good Christian should be. Donna, Mark, Cindi and all extended members of the Aliapoulios Family: I wish you peace for your breaking hearts and joy at knowing that he has gone to be with our Lord. We will all see him again one day.
Dear Donna, Mark, Cyndi and "Families"; My Heart goes out to You in this time of sorrow. Dr "A" was truly a compassionate and loving man. As my Boss of 10 years and friend my Family and I will truly miss Him. We were blessed to have Him in our lives . May He rest in peace and may God bless and comfort all of you in this time of sorrow.With Love; Lulu Scarpa and Family ...
Steve was a wonderful role model for many. His life was truly a life WELL lived. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Donna, and all your family.
Dr Steve.....Thank you for being such a wonderful person and dentist. You are loved by many and will be missed.
Thank you Dr Steve for being a wonderful dentist and person. At the age of 86 I have all of my teeth except one because of your care. Your gentleness and care will be missed by all. I thank The Lord that I was blessed by knowing such a wonderful individual as you.
My condolence to Dr. A's family. I had the privilege in working with him for many years, what an outstanding dentist, person and employer. The only dentist I worked with that really appreciated his employees and he let you know it. At the end of each work day he would say “thank you” for your work and treating his patients. WOW, don't get that these days. He will be truly missed!
Dr. A was my one and only dentist for 34 years. He was always there for me as a friend and a fellow Orthodox Christian. Our sympathies to Donna and family.
I will always have fond memories of Dr. A and I will miss him dearly now that he's with our Lord and Savior.
May Dr. A's memory be Eternal.
Our deepest sympathy to Steve's family, may his memory be eternal, and God have mercy on his soul, we truly are loosing too many choir members.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. We met Steve when he and the quartet came to Ashtabula, OH for my brother Gary's school reunion years ago. After a few minutes with him it was like I had known him for years. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. He will be missed .
Donna, Mark and Cindi, I was so sorry to hear of Steve's death. He was our dentist, Youth leader and friend. I remember stopping by your home in Lake Clark to say hello when I was down from Massachusetts. I was also fortunate to hear Mark sing at a concert in a town near us. May all your happy memories bring smiles to your faces. He was very special. Love, Zoe Ann (Walter) Liepins
Steve was a great person in everything I can think of. My parents and the whole Curl Family adored Steve. We send our best to Donna and Steve's family at this time of sorrow. I remember Donna and Steve's beautiful wedding at First Methodist Church. All the Curl family were patients in Steve's first dental office. Steve and Donna are why my sister Diane Curl became a dental hygienist. Steve sang excellent bass in the Swyers family quartet and made Howard Swyers very happy. My wonderful memories could go on and on.
Martha & Dick Curl
I was sadden to read of Dr A.'s passing. My deepest sympathy to his wife and family during this time of loss.I had been a patient of his since I was a small child. He was truly a gentle and peaceful man.
Steve will be missed by so many in so many ways. The ultimate gentleman with a talent for putting people at ease. Donna sang at our wedding, our dentist for more than 50 years, a fellow Rotarian, cherished friend. He overcame my 'dentaphobia'. So sorry his Earth suit just wore out. Comfort and peace to the entire Aliapoulios family as you cope with your loss. Blessings, Jim & Betty Anstis
Dr. A was a very nice and gentle at his work. I was a patient for many years as a child. Thank you for the pleasant memories.Peace to you and comfort to your family.

Johns Creek, GA
Steve was a wonderful leader in so many areas- dentistry, Rotary, choral and barbershop music and family. We remember him with affection and admiration for leading our youth group at WPB First Methodist Church. Along with Donna he provided an inspiring role model for us. Our thoughts and prayers are with Donna and family.
Diana and John Clarkson
I moved out of the area for 10 years, but continued to see Dr. Steve. Never trusted anyone else as my dentist. I would make vacation plans around my cleanings twice a year, call my mom and say "get me an appointment with Dr. Steve". I will always remember his hearty, infectious laugh. You could hear it when you walked in the door of the office. You knew the Dr. was in.
He will always be a hero to us! Donna, Mark and Cyndi, you are in our hearts and prayers. We know he is with our Heavenly Father but we know how much you miss him. Shalom
Such special memories of Steve and Donna when Nan and I were teaching school at Meadow Park and Pat was Steve's dental assistant. What a full and blessed life he lived!
To the family of Dr.Steve Aliapoulios, My love and prayers are with you all at this sad time of his passing. What a wonderful guy he was, and my Mama, Beulah Lindsey, loved him to pieces and always had a joke for him. I am certain that she was there to greet him as he entered Heaven's gates, and I'm also sure she had a joke for him! Our 50th anniversary is tomorrow, and I STILL have fillings that Dr. Steve put in when I was a child! God bless and comfort all of you and give you that "peace that passes understanding" that only He can give!
What a wonderful man!! He was my dentist for many years. Always smiling and such a gentle soul. May he rest in peace.
Dear Dr. Steve's family, as a Lake Worth Rotarian I just heard the news from our president,RON's E-Mail. I am so sorry to lose such a great man, singer, dentist, family man and Rotarian. I grieve with you at your loss. He was a frequent visitor at our L.W Rotary meetings. My prayers and condolences go out to you all.
Dr. Jack Richmond

I was so sorry to read about Dr. Aliapoulios this morning. He and his family were/are much loved by my family mainly through the First Methodist Church.
Dr. A. our family dentist for so many years. and one of our regular chaperones for choir trips with HB. surrogate family to me and to many others...loved those summer days spent at their house, playing around the pool.

Steve was such an influence in my life. His wonderful laugh and beautiful voice still comes to me with a smile.
My oldest daughter, Sherri, was one of his Dental Hygienist.
My Dad, Chuck, would come to see Steve the Dentist. Then they would sing Barbershop songs in the office.
Steve touched so many lives in the best ways.
I also remember he and Donna going with the Palm Beach High School Band on our trip to New York in 1956.
God will greet you with open arms Steve.
Dr A will be missed by all of us as he always had a great smile and a great outlook on life. We know he is making other people smile now. May He Rest In Peace . Dan, Annette, and Toni Danny's Shoe Repair
Steve, You humbly and freely lived your life in service to God and neighbor. With the warmest of memories, we lovingly pray for peace for you and your wonderful family.
