We got to know Steve as a valued friend of my mother. He was a greatly respected and loved member of the Glenn Eagle community.
We appreciated Steve’s ready smile, twinkling eyes, quick wit and sharp mind. He was a gentle man with good will and kind words for everyone he encountered. He touched many lives. Dayenu. Tim & Lisa
