Steve was a Godly Man who I considered a very good friend as well as having teaching and coaching in common. Whenever we would meet, he made you feel as if you had just made his day. I know that Steve, without a doubt is with our Lord and Savior at this very moment. I along with so many others, will miss him greatly.

Steve was a beautiful and positive teacher. He knew exactly how to reach kids. His presence on Amador High campus was a message in itself. Because he was a big man and knew the kids, he garnered much respect. Mary Walser, former principal

Steve and family, I was a teammate several years back with Steve, he was always feisty and a competitor, and for that, I admired and respected him. The last time I saw Steve was at the old ball fields, passing each other in the parking lot. Rest easy buddy, and to his family, my prayers to all of you
