I am Steve's nephew. Uncle Steve was a good and generous man and a great husband. He had a big heart and he was my favorite Uncle. I have the best memories staying with my Aunt Laura and my Uncle Steve and going on trips with them. Nobody could tell story like Uncle Steve and he had a lot to tell. He will be forever remembered and missed. Love you Uncle Steve

When I met Steve in 1980, I knew right away that he was special...he had such a great smile and sparkling eyes that drew me to him, and it didn't take long before I fell in love, and we married two years later. Steve was a good husband, my soul mate, best friend, and just an all-around nice guy who I will love and miss forever. We were such a great team, and he was my reason for living each day! I've had a difficult time dealing with his loss, and it has taken me over a year to post this, but I am finally writing to honor his memory. He is with God now and at peace! Until we meet again in eternal life...your partner and wife, Laura Sue

I served with Steve as a USCG Marine Inspector and was always impressed with his knowledge, his sense of duty and his great personality. I've held fond memories of our service together. Fair winds and following seas my old shipmate.

I consider myself fortunate to have lived next door to Steve and Laura and to have enjoyed his neighborly company. He was a lovely person. Always ready with a helping hand , if asked, and always a smile. It's a tragedy to loose him so young.

Steve was my favorite (and only) son; much loved, of whom I am very proud,and gone from us far too soon. Now he is at peace and with his Heavenly and earthly fathers. Praise God!

I met Steve and Laura at Siena's Restaurant over three years ago, and struck up a conversation with them, and have been friends ever since. Barb & I have enjoyed going to the movies, lunches and dinners together with Steve and Laura over the years. Steve and I always enjoyed talking about music! He was a great guy and will be missed very much! So grateful that he didn't have to continue suffering. Our love and prayers go out to Laura.

I was Steve’s “sister’. He was a man I truly loved&respected. A good man who was always a mentor to my four boys. I feel very blessed for the time he was in our lives.❤️

Steve was my cousin. He always had sparkling, friendly eyes! My husband and I just traveled to visit Steve and Laura two summers ago and loved seeing them! God is good, all the time. My husband Rick knew how I wanted to see him again and we traveled cross the country, and I'm so glad we have that memory. Feel our hugs and love.

Steve was my wonderful brother-in-law. He had a great sense of humor, and as I and others will attest, he had a most generous heart. His sister Debbie (my wife) and I will always remember Steve by the two tables he made for us while in the Coast Guard. He would take discarded wooden rims from cable spindles and stack them up, add varnish, and voila beautiful tables! They stand solidly and proudly in our living room and bedroom. Steve, Debbie and I love you very much, and we will miss you for a time, but we know that you are with Bob and Hugh in the compassionate care of our God. Lux aeterna luceat vobis. Brother Doug

So sorry to lose Steve much too soon. Mary and I were fortunate to have been able to visit with Steve and Laura on a visit through Greenville last year. I met him when I was a young Coastie trying to find my way in the organization in the mid 90s. He was the Education Services Officer at our unit and helped get me back on a track to finish my undergrad at the time and paved the way for much continued school after that. Last year when they came through, he was enjoying going through my vinyl collection and sitting around our backyard fire pit. Steve, your light will continue to shine through all you touched. Thanks my friend.

Steve was always a young soul and could always make me laugh. You were an encouragement to our family. Dale made it through high school with that computer you gave him and you were right nothing bad camw of it. Christon always spoke of your and Lauras visits at work and she appreciated your kind words. You will be missed and your service to the military and Wilmington is remembered through the difference you made. May you rest safely with Jesus.

Steve was my friend through grade school, high school, and beyond. When I was a new student at Atonement Lutheran School in third grade the teacher assigned Steve to make me feel welcome. He did a good job of that. During high school Steve and I were in a group of guys that went on float trips in the Ozarks together. Once we graduated and Steve joined the Coast Guard he and I wrote letters to each other. One of my favorite memories of Steve is when we got together for the wedding of one of our high school friends, Bob Brauer. After the wedding I gave Steve a ride back to his boat which was on the Mississippi north of St. Louis. We talked all the way there and Steve snuck me onto his boat so that I could look around. I searched for Steve online many times over the years after we lost track of each other. I finally found him through his little sister, Kate. I'm glad that we got to send a few emails and pictures the last couple of years. I pray that the Lord sends you comfort and peace in this difficult time.
