Steve and I went to high school together. He was always a sweet, kind person with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. He will be missed.
Steve was my walking partner for years when we lived behind the high school. If I wasn't out on the street at our appointed time, he'd come rap on my window telling me to 'get up-get up' until I'd get out there. We'd walk a three block radius over and over since my sons were little and sleeping in the house. There was nothing we didn't talk about. He was like a brother - right there across the street. He was never negative in any way about anybody or anything. Just a happy soul. Always had a big hug for me whenever we saw each other after that. I will miss you Steve. You were one in a million. See you one day...
Steve was always there to great you...with that great smile and a warm hug...Farewell gentle giant...until we meet again...
Steven, Always a dear friend and sounding board, who loved to TALK about relationships, friendships and fun. Neck and shoulder massages were always welcome as well as the over abundance of food and drink on those Monday evenings. I'll miss you Steve, Always,
Steven was different. His personality was so above the norm. He went out of his way to be sensitive and caring.I know he had many friends but I would count him as one of my best friends.I will miss him alot.
I have know Steve since 1974, he was very thoughtful, out going & looking out for his friends. I just saw him at Thanksgiving-him and Vernon helping Pat.
I'll miss him at our 4th of July BBQ.
Steve was a gentle kind soul. The SLO Skiers were very lucky to have Steve as a long time member. He was always available to help out in any number of varied interest projects. He will be sorely missed by those of us who knew him well. Heaven is the recipient of a kind and giving angel.
It was with sadness that I followed Steve's struggles after his accident and sorrow to learn of his death. He was a wonderful person and friend to all of us and I am pleased to know that he was loved so much by everyone. He was a tireless volunteer for the SLO Blues Society where I knew him for many years. We have all lost a dear friend and companion
My sincere condolences for the tragic loss of your beloved Steven.May God lift you up as you draw close to him in prayer.Ps.94:18&19
I am so sorry that Steve has passed. Though I do know that his physical body no longer struggles. His spirit is at peace. And though his is missed, he peacefully resides in our memories. Sending comforting prayers to his families and friends.
Shocked to hear of Steve's passing. We go way back to the Journalism Department in the 70's and kept in contact through the years. He was always a willing volunteer as a bar tender at our fundraisers. I will miss knowing that Steve is just down the street. His memory will live on.
I used to see Steve more often, and I was always happy to see him when he came by. Even after leaving the police department, he would come by just to say hello, because he was a nice guy. One of the people I missed the most, was Steve. Knowing he was out there living his dream, and having a great time with his life is wonderful to know. He was too young to leave this world. My condolences to his family.
I am shocked & saddened to hear of Steve's passing. We worked together at the SLOPD -- where he was the ONLY one to make use of my shorthand abilities! Such a generous, caring individual -- and I felt lucky to be on the receiving end of his poems & generous music cassette tapes! I got in trouble with my boss, the Capt., when Steve would give me the best neck/shoulder massage! It was when harassment in the workplace was just becoming a big deal! I had to make it very clear that it was all above board and sooo appreciated after long hours of typing up reports for the Dept. We joked about it a lot! I still have the set of glasses he me and Ray for our wedding-- I use them everyday! I will always remember Thursday nights at the old Sebastian's watering hole! He was a true friend when you needed one, and the world will miss this man who shared his charismatic ways with all people! Rest in peace, dear Steve!
