Steve was a friend of mine when I lived in Clay County many years ago. Steve was a kind and generous person. I want to send my sympathy to his family at this difficult time.

We, EGHS Class of 70, are just learning of Steve’s sudden passing. Our sincere condolences to the family.
Steve was one of those you loved to be around. Soft spoken, his sweet grin, and honest goodness made you comfortable, and want to talk to him more and more. His kindness was always at the forefront, surpassed only by those twinkling eyes.
We will miss him at our 50th reunion next year. But he will be there in spirit. He was loved by so many...

My condolences to the family. Steve was one of my closest friends since we were college roommates back in 1973. Steve was a year ahead of me. We had fantastic times in college both at the university dorms and at his parents home in Melbourne, Florida. After Steve graduated, he invited me to Clay County West Virginia at Thanksgiving where he had taken a teaching job at Bickmore Elementary School. Thereafter, I visited him and eventually his family at the Farm often and they would come to Florida as well. Steve was always the teacher and taught me so much about the mountains. I will always remember Steve and the close bond we shared. He lives on in my heart as my brother.
