I grew up with Steve. We lived in the same neighborhood. I have lots of childhood memories that include Steve, like tromping around in the gully behind our street, playing tennis at his house, and playing soccer together on Mr. Z’s team. Steve was always sharp and witty. He was without a doubt one of the smartest, funniest people I’ve ever met. My later memories of Steve revolve around this humor. From Junior High on we always seemed to have the same English and Spanish classes. Steve made them a lot more exciting than they otherwise would have been. He was the original class clown. You never knew what he was going to do or say, but you knew it was going to be funny. I’m sure teachers would look at their rosters before a given term and get a bit anxious if they saw Steve’s name. Despite this, he wasn’t malicious or mean to them or others. I think Steve just operated outside of the bounds in which the rest of us struggled. He saw humor in all things and challenged others, including teachers, to do the same. Aside from his humor and wit, I remember Steve as a fundamentally good person and a good friend. He definitely left too soon. Rest in peace Steve.

 This is Christmas Dance 1981 or '82. Steve, true to form, is mocking the ridiculousness of it all and cracking me up. No one could made me laugh so much, think so hard or got me in more trouble than he did. He had a huge heart, brilliant mind and lived life to all of its limits. Happy Trails, Steve. Until we meet again, rest in peace.
