    To the family:

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Steve was a kind & caring man. We had the opportunity to meet & get to know him through racing. He was very courteous to those around him. If more people were like him, the world would be a better place. Steve was loved by many & he will be missed. Our thoughts & prayers go out to each one of you. May you all have comfort, peace, & strength during this difficult time & in the days which follow. God bless…..

  9. My sincere heartfelt sympathy to the family. Steve was at one time who I called “My Mechanic” until he retired. Always trusted him to do the proper work and he never once overcharged me. I will always miss him with his dry humor and ability too repair what others could not. He was a good man and very honest in his life. I know he leaves behind many friends that feel the same way as I.

  10. Debbie im so sorry for your lose. Mike and kim will miss him

  11. Debby and the rest of Steve’s family……..my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. May Steve Rest In Peace!
