We send our deepest sympathies to Sherrie and the family. Steve was a coworker of Gary's for many years at State Farm. We were blessed to have the Geoslings as friends. We pray that God's peace be with the family at this time, Steve and Judy LaBerge

I am deeply saddened to hear this. We came to Bloomington a month apart. Rookies together. He was a great friend and colleague. I had never lived outside of Alabama and he helped me navigate the ways of the Midwest. My condolences to Sherrie and his daughters.
