“I've had the pleasure of his company several times in last couple of years. Zak actually tested for rank at my academy under the watchful eye of instructor Mike Allen, and Steve was there offering encouragement... never interrupting, just being there for his son. A wonderful man, with two wonderful sons. God Bless Steve Burton.
“Steve and I were teammates on the cross country team at Chamberlain High School and he was a fierce competitor even back then. He never backed away from a challenge and I am not surprised to see how many things he accomplished during his lifetime. He will be greatly missed.
“My heart goes out to Steve's family. I am so happy that he and Melissa Helms found each other. Although she had to say goodbye she knows that he loved her. May you rest in peace Steve.
“I was very blessed to have known Steve at Chamberlain High School. We were on the Totem yearbook staff our senior year and what fun we had.

“Let us endeavor so as to live in that when we die even the undertaker will cry... Mark Twain - Steve so lived his life leaving all of us too soon yet humbled by his friendship, counsel and leadership... You will be dearly missed my friend but never ever forgotten - God rest your soul eternally and comfort your family and friends with his peace and grace...
