"I had the opportunity to work with Steve both at DCHS and Chapel Hill. He was a dear friend and great co-worker. I always respected and admired his passion for coaching and his family. It was not until later that I learned that there were some demons upsetting his life. I respected his privacy and would have understood him even better if he would have shared some of his inner issues.
He was a good coach and mentor to both my sons Roberto and Alex Rodriguez. There was a time that Alex got in trouble and when other adults turned their backs your dad was present with wise advice and understanding. Both of my sons have a lot of respect for him and were deeple upset when they heard of his passing.
Steve was one of those souls that you never forget. He was fun, passionate, strong, and genuine in his concern for those young minds that were entrusted to him.
I know finding comfort is hard. He is truly missed and rest assure that he will not be forgotten.
I continue to pray for him and for all his loved ones.
May you find comfort in the good memories and the love he had for you and your siblings."
"Steve's love for his family, friends, teammates, and students was pure and alive. He always saw the God-given potential in every human being. He lifted those that needed lifting and celebrated with those that fell upon success. His drive and ambition was captivating and his sense of humor contagious. We have all been blessed by knowing and loving him.
Chrissy (Rodick) Pullin"
