    I am deeply sorry to hear this sad news. I’ve known Steve for a very long time. We all went camping when the. Kids were little, and I even baby sat for his son Steve when he was an infant. My love and prayers to his family.

    I worked construction with “Cheap” Steve for many years at Kodak Construction. I have shared a few “Buckets” of beer with him, and others!!! Mostly Pipefitters, and they were the Wild Bunch. All good people who had each others back. Everybody liked Steve. He was a good all around good guys. He helped me coach the kids with Greece Community Baseball along with his sons, who knew baseball better than we did. He was a top Welder. He could Weld anything except “The Crack of Dawn and a Broken Heart”. He helped me on many on my projects for Kodak Construction and my “Government” jobs. BTW He got the nickname “Cheap” Steve because he was always trying to get some else to buy the next “Bucket” of beer. All in fun. And he loved it and wore it well. Rest in Peace Brother.

    We knew Steve for 26 years. He has always been a good neighbor. Always able to stop and chat out in the yard. I will miss his greeting of “howdy neighbor”. Our thoughts are with you, dear family. We will miss him.
