Steve was a wonderful friend. He always kept things exciting as we were growing up together in St. George. Steve was an individual of great talents, not the least among them was his spirit of generosity. Steve was kind to everyone around him and always willing to extend a hand in friendship. I was blessed to have known him.

Our hearts and prayers are with your family at this time. Steve was the greatest of friends, examples and confidants. He kept me sane many a times at College. He always could teach you from any experience and made the best out of all situations. His Love of life made everything fun and everyone happy. So many of us have been blessed by his friendship and love. Thank you for raising and sharing such a wonderful son with us.
