Deepest sympathy to the family. Had him for a teacher his first two years of teaching. Best teacher I ever had. Always knew he'd be a good Dad!

I am so saddened by the loss of your father/grandfather. He was, hands down, my favorite teacher. He was so kind, understanding, caring and loving. He was one of the first people, outside of family, that showed me that he cared. I remember him having pictures of you on his desk. When I would ask about you, he would glow when he told me about you. He truly was one of the best and will be missed dearly. God bless you.

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your father/grandfather. Steve was such a help to both my mother and father through many years. Steve was also a great comfort to me personally during the loss of my mother. I was blessed to have known him. He will be missed by many.

I would like to express my sympathy to Steve's family. It was my pleasure to teach with Steve at Susquehanna Elementary in Oriental for 3 years. He was so helpful to me as I was a beginning teacher. I hadn't seen him for years until a few months ago when I talked to him at the Weis Store in Mifflintown. It was quite clear that his family was his greatest joy and we enjoyed sharing a few stories about our grandkids. May God bless you as you grieve for Steve and walk through this tough time.

There is no doubt that Steve was appreciated and loved as a dedicated father, grandfather, and teacher because as a friend, he was the best friend anyone could ever have. He had many friends, all of whom saw him as a person of integrity, intelligence, goodness, and fun. I don't know of anyone who could match Steve's wonderful character. He will always be remembered.
