I met Steve and his brothers right after the Sees moved in down the street from us on Honors Drive. It was immediately clear that Steve was a leader, a diplomat, such a fair person. And above all; we had fun. Just ask anyone in my family about the bunny hutch. We enjoyed all those bunny rabbits, so much; hauling the hutch way up the hill in our backyard, watching, "Arnold," (the mother bunny) have all those litters. It was amazing. Steve was amazing. And Steve was just as funny and wild as the rest of us! I'll never forget him. Steve, we will always love you, our friend!

I met Steve at a BBQ he was having with Ken. He was charming and alert to all around him, plants, animals, sounds and feelings. He brought his own music mixes when he came for massage. His fiftieth birthday was the first I heard him sing and I was impressed. What a talented and loving soul.

We had quite a journey when we worked "Skateboard Madness" with Hal Jepsen, Mellow Cat and all the kids who rode the skateboards. The pressure was intense and as usual the money was invisible. It was a trip sharing the pad in Topanga Beach for those 4 months. You had guitar presence and a sweet voice. But you needed to get on with your journey and decided to move on. Wished you could have stayed awhile longer. I'll remember you being mistaken for Tom Petty at a music store and everyone freaked out. Ha Ha.

You were and are and always will be a peaceful soul. Mellow Cat (Kurt Lederman) sends his condolences to your family as do we all. Sorry I did not get to see you again. Those ten years slipped by too fast once again. Play your music your way, it was sweet.

I was always greeted with a smile and Steven always knew what I was trying to convey when no one else did. His wit was amazing. Very sad for us all in Morro Bay as he was professional, effcient and kind. My last memory of Mr. See is us both laughing a few months ago.:)
Goodbye Steven:(
Sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

I had the privilege of meeting and working with Steve during his stint at KOTR, and during some of the early Hoot events at Camp Ocean Pines. I will always remember the positive energy he brought into my life and the lives of everyone around him. Bon voyage, my friend.
