Dear Schiavo Family, I just learned today about Steve's passing. I wanted to give you my sincere condolensces. I was an employee of Steve's at Vitamin World in Sarasota, Florida over a year ago. He was a genuine, down-to-earth and amazing human being who made us all smile and laugh every day. He always had a kind word and wonderful personaliy. He often talked about how much he loved his wife and family or fishing trips he enjoyed. I will never forget what a privilege and honor it was to know such a warm, caring and lovely human being. He was definitely one of a kind. He often gave his wife credit for making him the man he was and he loved her very dearly. Again, my sincere condolensces. Michelle Mindock

Our deepest condolences. My family and I were loyal customers of Vitamins 'N' More for 15 years. We loved sitting on the long bench inside the store chatting with Steve and company. And boy, did he have company. One time Steve said to me, "Everyone in town knows me." He was right, too. I used to kid him and tell him from his profile, he reminded me of that legendary gonzo-journalist from Rolling Stone Magazine, Hunter Thompson. Patti was the love of his life. He was so proud of his children, Jennifer & Andrew and his grandchildren with photos of them hanging by the cash register. Everytime I came in, he had new family photos to share. Why does that Billy Joel song have to ring so true? Only the good die young....

It has been nearly a month since I and another traveler stopped after seeing Steve's car leave the highway. We comforted Steve as much as we could. He was a valiant man in the face of his injuries and was able to answer important questions to establish the extent of his injuries and degree of awareness. It was obvious to me and the other gentleman that we were aiding an unusual man. During what must have been 15 minutes before the first responders arrived (highway patrol) Steve endured his injuries without complaint.
After the paramedics arrived, after about another 5 minutes, I left Steves side and returned to my car. I wondered as I drove away what the outcome might be, but feared the worst. Today I thought to look at the Sarasota obituaries and felt a very genuine sadness to learn of your great loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sincerely, Burdell Moody Gold Canyon, Arizona

Patti and Family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I was shocked to see Steve's picture in the paper. Patti... I'm at a loss for words. I just lost my mom in March and my dad in Sept. Both parents gone 6 months to the day.I know how hard it is on the family with a sudden death. Both of my parents went that way. Steve called to say hi. I was so busy with my dad's sudden passing that I didn't get a chance to call back. Life is short. Patti we will all miss him and his crazy laugh. So sorry Joe and I couldn't make it to the funeral. If you ever need anything let me know. You and your family are in our prayers

Patti, Al, John, and Fanily....We were shocked to hear about the passing of Steve. We often think about the good times on Berkshire and how Mickey was so proud of her children and their spouses. Your family is in out thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I worked at Edgebrook during the time that Steve owned Vitamins $ More. He always offered a friendly remark and greeted me with a big smile. I am sorry to hear of his accident. Condolences to his family. I'm sure that he was loved.
