"Steve and I sat next to each other for about 7 years at our weekly Vet Center group in Sarasota.  Terrific sense of humor and always had some really great one-liners. Even after he lost his voice he would pass me jokes written on a pad he had. He loved his family and his country and we at the Vet Center group will all miss him greatly."

I'll never forget his unique sense of humor, always in time with a one liner in response to any remark, the cast of characters that surrounded him, "Ryder", "Wimp"," Skitch", "Moochie", "Hank Snow",etc. RIP brother,  "honk" on!"
