To The Families: So very sorry for your loss. Stevie was a sweet and fun cousin, a good guy. Quiet humor; fun storyteller. I loved the way he and Grampy Sokol "bached it" at the Lake every summer. Our kids loved being there with them, too. Sincere sympathies, Sue and Lonni Leroux

Worked with Steve for years at dss. No one worked harder to master the complex details of the various different tasks he was assigned. He loved to read research and understand all sides of his assignments. A true baseball fan who could deliver and enjoy a good laugh
