The first time I met Steve he was pumping gas for Mr. Bill. He performed a magic trick and made a dollar bill vanish into thin air. I remember laughing a lot as I drove away. That was 15 years ago and since them I saw him do that trick dozens of times often with a crowd around him all the while telling his corny jokes. He was happiest making people laugh with his magic and jokes. Over the years we spent countless hours on the phone sometimes a couple of hours a day talking about everything in the world...and boy, did our view points differ on so many things. We had fiery conversations and arguments that led to taking "breaks" from each other. Nobody could infuriate me like Steve could. But no matter what we always remained loving friends and what a friend he was! Always looking to solve problems and to help. He loved to complain about social injustices but when I think about it, as much as he suffered physically, he never once complained about his pain. He had a gentle heart...not a mean bone in his body...and a forgiving heart. And he loved Eric more than anything in the world. Steve was one of a kind and I miss him so much. I called him my human gps because no matter where I travelled, when I got lost he guided me. Steve was a good man and I loved him very much.

Steve was a unique person that never held back his feelings. Especially when it came to business. He was a success in his own rite and had alotta fun doing what he did best "pitching his products". He'll be missed.
