I am so sorry to hear of this!
I knew Steve and had the pleasure of working with him on several events.

He was a dedicated democrat and friend.

It's a shock to hear of this, although I haven't talked to Steve in a while (a few years) the times I was able to work and visit with him were always memorable and fun. He will truely be missed.

Stephen and I were very close longtime ago, i think about him often, last year before he pasted we reconnected and than both of us got busy and stopped. I cant believe he is gone. He will always be remembered in my heart.
