"Steve was among my earliest friends in Santa Barbara. We worked together as mechanics at a local motorcycle shop and enjoyed many good times together.
He had a real talent turning the wrenches, and he also rode like the wind.
God speed Steve......"

"The good times were among the best ever ... abalone diving in Pt Loma, four day fishing trips in a 17 ft boat, and falling asleep at the wheel and going over the edge in the mountains above Palm Springs.  I wouldn't have missed it for the world!"

"I have put a story about Steve in "sharing a story".  Steve, quite literally, saved my life.  I doubt I would have survived to age 20, had it not been for something Steve did.  I am stunned at his loss.  He will always be in my prayers.  Murray Abrahamson DSS '77"

This tribute was added by Bob Kennedy on 6th December 2012

"Steve was a generous and funloving guy who reached out to me and my family.  I am greatful for his friendship and all the memories.  I often wished we would get back together with his SLO friends, knock back a few, and tell some tall tales about fishing and Saudi.  And boy do I have some stories, he was larger than life: like when we played darts with his blow gun and ..."

"I have such a fond memory when Pam and Steve spent Thanksgiving in Sedona with us….we were playing Trivial Pursuit and Steve guessed on a card 'as a lonely memory'…..somehow, that was a classic and has been reminisced many times.

God Bless You Steve"
