    I had the pleasure of knowing Steve through MCYH. We worked many registrations and tryouts together. I will fondly remember his unassuming nature, pleasant disposition and willingness to listen to parents, players and coaches. He was a wonderful, kind gentleman who will be missed by all who knew him. Please accept my sincere and deepest condolences for your loss.

    I worked with Steve at Hahn Automotive. when we did not have a manager. he would stop down every few days to check on us and make sure that we had every thing we needed. he was the type that would go above and beyond. he was truly a great individual. He will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. Worked with him at Bausch and Lomb and will always keep his memories in my heart.
