    We will always remember the smiles, laughter and songs that Steve so readily shared. Our hearts are with you Diane and kids. We will hear his voice singing the Shepherd’s Prayer, telling us, “move me closer to the child”, until we see him again one day. Thanks for the memories Steve. We will miss you.

    Steve and I kept in touch via FB and shared some good laughs and ideas. He stopped by when he was in the U.P. last winter for the big Magi playoff and visited a couple of hours. He said he would bring his wife up for a visit. Steve worked with my mother, Esther First, at Hardings MANY years ago and she truly thought a lot of “that nice young man”. Many people thought a lot of that nice young man….and will for years to come. Prayers for healing for the family.

    The whole family is in our thoughts and prayers. I remember meeting Steve when my family first moved to Colon in the early 90’s. He was a great guy and I have tons of great memories of visiting his kids (my friends) at his house throughout middle school and high school. He was always someone that I looked up to. Our condolences go out to all of his family and friends. -The Haacks (Matt, Jocelyn, Audrey, and James)
