It’s been many years since the high school days so I don’t have a specific memory, but I remember Steve’s sweet spirit. 🙏

Steve was a GENUS FAN!
He knew every stat on each player, any sport, & talked with the coaches and players on the bus, for every game.
Steve was an excellent Navigator, also. He guided me to countless AWAY GAMES, though I had directions.
I’d drive him home after games, he always gave me the directions!
R.I..P Mr. Steve,
from your biggest fan! 🚌
