"I live in Canton, Ohio, and met Mr. Van Buren many times when he would be in Canton during HOF week. He was always very nice, liked to talk with fans, and sign autographs. May he rest in Peace in the comfort of Our SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST."

"Condolences to the Van Buren family. Growing up in Philly, I have always been a die-hard Eagles fan, and know my Eagles history as well. My father would also tell me stories of the Eagle teams during his childhood, and Van Buren was always a standout. He was one of the greatest Eagles of all time (he and Bednarik), and made a lot of headlines and great memories for so many in Philly during his time. Great man as well!"

"Our deepest sympathy to all of Van Buren family. Steve was the greatest player during the years he played. He was a true model for all future players to follow. He was my hero at eight years of age and will always be as long as I live. Bob Nonemaker"
