Steve was definitely one of a kind. I always admired how he flew to his own tune, and never really wavered from that. As Ive grown older and have looked back, Ive realized how fortunate I was to have Steve as a mentor during my youth. He was always very involved and active with the interests that lane and I shared; leading our Boy Scout pack, playing dodgeball, Wally ball, laughing, watching the crazy exploits we were going though, fireworks, the coolest slot car track known to man, an all night risk tournament... hell, one time Steve even personally flew us in a 4 seat airplane to cedar pointe! Steve was consistent and very cool in demeanor and personality. I am so sorry for your loss Linda and family. I will always be looking with a smile and knowledge of how lucky I was that this incredible man was involved in my life. In all good ways, simple and complex are opposites, but both help to describe Steve. I certainly can say that with a smile. I think I will occasionally start answering my phone with the phrase telephone for an instant laugh and grin.
