I worked with Steve at JP Morgan Chase. He was truly one of the best managers anyone could have. Steve was kind, fair and understanding. His gentle spirit made him easy to talk to. He was always fatherly in his dealings with people. To his family, thank you for sharing him with us and I pray God's comfort and peace upon you at this time of bereavement. Heaven had gained another angel.

I'm sorry for your loss, Kathy but he was so much fin to be around with. He could drive my mom nuts sometime, (Carol Gigliotti) and I would drive him nuts just as bad. I loved talking to him, Tony and Gary. Lots of fond memories of the 7th floor at Central, even at Chase for a while. Know heaven got a new angel and more laughs for both Steve and my mom.
