I am saddened to hear that cancer has taken such a wonderful man. I knew Stevie as an adorable child when we lived in Stuart Gardens and was friends with him all through grade school and during our years at NNHS. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Gina,
I was so saddened to hear of Steves fight with cancer and his untimely death. When I heard he retired my thoughts immediately went to him enjoying daily "tee times" at this favorite golf course. May the passage of time ease your pain and sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Steve Pullen Intake Supervisor, Court Services, interviewed me 36 years ago for a job as a Probation Officer. Knowing him, I'm sure he would have said that at times he may have had second thoughts about that one. I have always appreciated everything that he taught me during those early years. What a great guy.
