On Tuesday, July 24th, we lost a wonderful friend and classmate.  I have known Steve since our Junior year of high school, and he became a special friend of my husband Dan's when they met at Rutgers.  In fact Steve and Diane introduced us, and we were marred the year after they were.  Although Steve and Diane moved to Cape Coral, Florida upon their retirement, we were still able to keep in touch and thoroughly enjoyed all of their visits to New Jersey.  It is hard to find words to describe our feelings at this time but I know that we were very fortunate to have known Steve for so many years.  He was a wonderful, caring friend...a loving husband and father, and also a devoted teacher.  He really did make a difference in this world, and we will miss him very much.  Rest in peace, Steve.  We love you!

Steve and i were friends from second grade, over 60 years. What Donna stated about Steve is true. He did a lot of good in this world, and he will be missed. I live in Alaska and haven't seen much of Steve, so it was great to see him at the 50th Reunion last October. It was a pleasure to introduce him and Diane and watch their relationship grow over the years. They have two wonderful sons, and with their kids will leave a lasting legacy. Rest in peace Steve. You will be missed.

Steve and I have been friends since we were 13 years old. When we were 16, we would take the bus over to the University of Pennsylvania Museum where we would clean artifacts. Then we joined the Philadelphia Depth Chargers, and took a scuba diving course. After that we joined Forney's Battalion, a Civil War North-South Skirmish group. In July 1961, we participated in the re-enactment of the Battle of Bull Run.

I drove over to Cape Coral for Steve's memorial service, and met his two sons for the first time. They were just as nice as Diana and Steve had always been.
