Read of the passing of Steve and it brought back memories of 1969 when I moved to New Lenox and Steve was the first person to welcome me. What a great guy. The memories of him are many. I'm sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with his family

Sajd, I will never forget your wonderful humor and special laugh. You have always had the gift of putting a smile on others and I thank you for the many you gave me the past 40 years
My deepest heartfelt sympathy to Lori, Mike, Tim Joanne and all that know Steve. May your memories along with the knowledge of how many lives Steve has touched in such a meaningful way give you some comfort during this painful time.

I met Steve many years ago as he was a good friend of my brother Kevin. Of course if you knew Steve, he became your friend too! Many years of playing football on Sundays with Steve and the guys are among my fondest memories. Road trips to Mississippi and every other time I was with Steve...I was laughing. I could go on and on but I am blessed to have know Steve.

Lori and Family,

We are very sorry for your loss. Steve was always a great cousin to us. I have some old family video of Steve at family parties from back in the day I'll try and get to you.

Only regret from me was I never got to beat him in golf!

Rest in Peace Steve.

I didn't get to see Lori and Steve much, but I remember the first time I met him at a family gathering in Carlinville. Everytime Lori looked at him, her face lit up. I could tell they were best friends, and thanked God for their relationship.
