I am saddened to hear of Steve’s passing. We were old baseball buddies. We spent many hours on the field together. He was such a great person…so many fond memories. The world will miss him. Peace and blessings to the family.
Rest In Peace my dear friend.
Steve was one of those guys that made our fraternity the best on campus during the years we were there. I think for guys like me who met Steve for the first time in the fraternity, it took no time at all to know he was a good person to have around. Condolences to his family
Connie, Courtney and Jake. I just saw KC Star the very sad news of the passing of Steve. We spent only 6 years or so of Steve’s time. But it was a wonderful 6 years. We crossed each other’s path recently and it was like we had been together everyday. So many memories of Steve. I have several grandkids playing baseball. And I think of Steve often. Especially when a strike in Steve’s word goes “right down the middle”. Our whole family is so very sorry for your loss. We have and will always remember Steve and your family with wonderful thoughts. I personally had a great deal of respect for Steve. He was as good as they come.
