Steve was my dads friend. I remember going over to his house a lot in my preteens. My earliest memory is Steve letting me drive his car and the him and my dad sitting in the back laughing and carrying on. What I will always remember most about Steve is he was a happy guy, always smiling. I like to think him and my dad found each other in heaven and our laughing and carrying on over a cold beer reminiscing about old times. I am truly sorry the loss everyone is feeling. His smile, his laugh, and his overall pure happiness will be missed so much.
