  1. My sister Martha told me about this an hour ago! We grew up right up the street from him. So many memories. I did run into him not too long ago. My heartfelt condolences to family and friends alike. Steve Jr (Nichols)

  2. I just saw you walking on Saturday and we waved to one another as we normally did whenever our paths might have crossed. I’m lost for words as I’m sure MANY of your friends are. I would just like to THANK YOU for being the person that you were. Your gentleness and caring ways will always be with those of us that knew you. Rest easy my friend, I hope you’re riding a bike somewhere enjoying the scenery 🙂
