Steven's Tribute Wall

Tributes (2):

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • To Steve’s family I’m sorry this happened, sorry he’s gone. We worked together at Duro for more than a decade. We both liked golfing a lot and spent many a day on the hamond course. I don’t think the course ever fully recovered. He was a fun guy to hang out with. We also played softball together, he was an excellent athlete and his love of baseball is the reason I’m a twins fan today. Fishing, yes we did some of that too and he took me bird hunting a few times. Many memories all good. I cared a lot for this guy and always will.

    • Sending as much love as possible to the family. I’ve seen posts for years and could tell how much his family meant to him. What a special guy 💚💛💚💛
