I am saddened to see that Steve has passed away. I always enjoyed my visits with Schmidty. He was always so joyful. May he leave you all with beautiful memories. He often would tell me how much he loved having breakfast with his Mom.
So sorry for your loss.
So sorry to hear of Steve's passing. We grew up around the corner from each other. From going after school to collect the trap line to camping and partying. He enjoyed doing many things. He will be missed.

My heart goes out to all who knew Steve. He was always an absolute joy to be around and had such a big heart. He cared deeply for his family and friends,always willing to help out even if it meant bringing in a couple armfuls of wood to stock up beside the fire on a cold winters day. Heaven has surely received one of the great ones. Peace, love and understanding. Dawn- Dawn

Dear Family. I'm so thankful for you who supported Steve through his life. I think I can hear Steve saying "Don't be sad". "I'm OK", and then he'd chuckle a little.
My last visit with Steve was amiable, and sincere.
Wishing you all the very best, as I'm sure Steve would wish you as well.
