Not sure what to say?

Steve Courson was a warrior in the only sense of the word--not as some paper football star, but as a man who strove to help people in need, even protect them. He stood up to be counted, to tell the truth, every time he was called. He did it for me and countless endangered athletes, like I was. I am honored to have been a friend.

I knew Steve for such a relatively short period of time, we were childhood friends growing up in Longmeadow, MA, from 12 to 16 years old before his family moved to Gettysburg. I’ve since followed Steve from a distance as a pro football player, author and spokesman, and would like to share some of our youth.

Steve was an avid history buff, collector, and liked to make things. His bedroom ceiling was decorated with dozens of WWII planes as if they were dog fighting. When he...

To My Cousin Dee Dee (And Steve’s Family and Friends),
I can’t express how my heart breaks for you. There are no words I could say to ease your pain but I wish there were. Steve is in a better place now, a place where he deserves to be. I did not know Steve very well, but I know my cousin well and he made her glow with happiness. I know he touched so many peoples lives the way he touched Dee Dee’s life. Everyone who knew him was fortunate. May God wrap his hands around all of you...

COURSON FAMILY ANOTHER ANGEL IS ABOVE US AND TO WATCH OVER US. I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF SEEING STEVE AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF MY LIFE. AT EVERY MEETING HE MADE AN IMPRESSION OF A VERY SWEET AND CARING MAN. THOSE OF US HE HAS MOVED WILL ALWAYS HAVE HIM IN OUR HEARTS. WE WILL MISS HIM.

Betty, Bruce, Judy and Lori:
My deepest condolences to your entire family. Steve loved Ru and Ra more than words can describe--it is tragic that he died saving the one that he loved so much. Please take solace knowing that he and his late wife Cathy are together again and are watching over all of you.

Steve,
Your are a wonderful, caring man who touched many lives. I will always remember you as the gentle giant holding Rufus and Rachel when you brought them home for Cathy. My deepest condolences to the Courson and Malerick families, it is my hope that Steve and Cathy are once again together.

Denise,The Courson Family & Friends,
I can’t express how deeply saddened I was to hear of Steve’s passing. He touched so many lives in his 50years of life, each one of those who he knew are richer & wiser people having him in their lives even if only for a moment. I had the pleasure of knowing Steve through my cousin Denise. I’ve never seen her happier then when she was with, talking to or talking about “her Stevie”. My personal memory is being at our cousin’s wedding (in...

To the Courson Family & other friends of Steve,
My deepest sympathy pours out to you in this time of sorrow. I am very disappointed that I could not make it to the viewing today. I believe Steve knows where my heart is though. I met him about seven years ago and I will truly miss the inspiration he had given to me to try to be the best I could be in every aspect of life as he did for himself. He was one of the most honest, ethical and positive people I have ever met in my life...

My condolences to the Courson family. I met Steve years ago through my brother Wally. He was a wonderful person.
