    Steve was truly one of the good ones! I have many memories of him from the Village Store. We were finally able to reunite about a year ago but again life just got in the way. I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Steve ❤

    Steve was always incredibly kind and supportive. Growing up with Mack and Nolan I remember the many times he let us turn his basement into a skatepark on rainy days. My thoughts and prayers go out to off of his family and friends. Thank you Steve

    Steve was kind hearted soul who will be missed by all who knew him. He is in a far better place now with his Mom & Dad. When it comes time for the Little League World Series we will be thinking of you.
