My picture of Steve, the one I will always carry with me, is of him, standing in his shirt sleeves in a pouring rain to fix yet another problem for me. He was there, after hours, with water streaming off him, soaked to the skin and still of good cheer because for him it was required -- not because he was mechanic for a company but because someone needed his help. I’ve got another mechanic now and he’s a good one but I still need my friend. I miss you Steve.

We didn't get together very often but when we did Steve made it a warm pleasant time. The world seems lonelier without his presence.

Steve, for over 20 years, you have been a constant in our lives. How we will miss you. Can't imagine our lives without you. The memories of our motorcycle trips are more precious than ever. You showed us an Alaska that was amazing. A professional guide would not have shown us the real Alaska that you were able to show us and the stories that you were able to share. Your family members in Alaska were amazing! We are all going to miss your hugs, your laughter, and your caring. We have lost you only for a short time, as someday we will be together again!

H2 I miss you!!!
