Over all the years I worked with Steve no one I knew personified the teaching of Jesus, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth" more than he. He was a truly remarkable man in that quiet, strong way. This world needs people like Steve. We miss him. God's comfort to his family Patrick Tice
