"I have been out of contact with my Uncle Steve since my Dad,James Robinson(they were half brothers) passed away in 1999,   I wish we had kept in touch. He was the last of the family.   Both his sisters and my dad passed before him.  I have fond memories of Uncle Steve and still remember when he came for my wedding in 1968. May he rest in peace."

"Steve was certainly a blessing to my mother in a time when she really needed her friends. He became much more than a friend to my mother and family. Their marriage gave my mother a companion that truly cherished her as I do. I love the fact that she was able to spend many happy moments with him through the years. I bless Steve for the time he was able give to my mom. He will be missed."

"Beyond the sometimes rough exterior, this man had a heart of gold. There were many faces of Steve..Loving husband, artist, animal lover-esp.dogs!, hunter, fisherman, camper...I could go on and on.  The most important and, to me, the best thing was his ability to help others which he did sometimes with tough love but always with true love for others. I miss my step-Dad every day. Love you"

"There are certain people who cross our paths that leave a lasting imprint.  In my life, “Grandma” Steve was one of those people.  It wasn’t necessary to agree with Steve to learn from him.  His wisdom regarding recovery and life’s challenges will influence me for the rest of my days.  I will miss his physical presence but he will forever be part of my spirit.  
No-nick-name Steve"
