Condolences to entire family. Just saw info on Facebook. Thoughts and prayers are sent to each one.7

We have some of the best memories sharing Christmas Eve dinners with Steve, Keith and Chris after Karen passed away. The Shaw family will always be considered family to us. Steve was one of the kindest men I have known and he will be greatly missed, but this compassion lives on in both his boys.

I remember Steve as a kind and attentive man. He would laugh at a child's corny joke as if it was the best thing ever, just like he mother did. I remember Steve's visits to farm in PA. He would visit each summer and he was such a positive influence, a warm and friendly man who saw the best in everyone.

I regret that distance prevented me from getting to know Steve and his sons better. From the few times we were able to visit, I know he was a thoughtful, gentle, intelligent man who was devoted to his family. I know my cousin Karen loved him very much and he made her happy.

Chris, your Father sounds like he was a wonderful man and I can see that reflected in you. You are blessed to have a strong family support and you all will help each other through this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. I am Steve's 1st cousin Lois Guyer Atherton. My mother was Olive Snyder Guyer & my father was William E. Guyer. I was born in 1949 and raised in Wheeling, WV. I am so sorry to say that it has been many years since I have seen Steve or any of his siblings. Rest in peace cousin Steve.

Our brother Steve will remain in our hearts forever. He made us smile and laugh. It was so much fun to sing songs with him while he played the piano.
