Marie, Bill and family, So sorry to hear about Steve. I really loved him. He dubbed me "The Power House of Pen Hook" after taking a picture around 1950 of skinny-me shirtless showing off my abs, pecs, and bicepts in a then Charles Atlas pose. I have loads of fond memories of his visits to Ohio and our one trip to New York and my dad losing his trunks diving into a wave at Jones Beach. He and his two brothers, Oshel and Norman were always so happy and full of pranks and fun. God Bless and be with you and your Family in the coming days.

Marie and family, We are so sorry for your loss. We know we will see Steve again as he believed that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Savior. Jesus said, "I am the Resurrection and the Life, he who believes in me will never die." John 11
