Mary,
I was so sorry to hear about Steve. You must be beside yourself. He was such a great and fun man. You two were perfect for each other. If there is anything I can do for you Kelly can give you my info. Again, I am really sorry. Karen Coyle Geipel

Steve was always a sunny side to an often regularly dark career choice. His positive attitude and professionalism and sense of humor made every day more fun, interesting, and tolerable. His fitness was an inspiration to staff much younger and older than him and that's how I will always remember Steve, super cool, and a solid guy.

Steve,

You are one of those people who touches so many along the journey of life without even trying. . Even though we aren't family I feel like a piece of me has been taken away. Blessed to have you in my life. Say hi to your mom and mine. See you down the road.

Tom and I are so very sorry to hear the word of Steve's passing, there are no words to express our deep sorrow. I'm sure he would like his memory to be a happy one, full of laughter and witty jokes. He was always able to put a smile on the faces of others. We will surely miss him. May God be with you and give you strength during this trying time.

There are no words to describe the sorrow I am feeling at Steve’s passing. He was a great friend, mentor and an all around wonderful person. I will miss your big heart and your smile, your jokes, all the great talks we had and great meals we shared. May you rest in peace, dear friend. I will never forget you. My love and prayers to Mary and all of Steve’s family. Deb Rossi

Steve, I will always smile and laugh when I think of you. You made the morning gym crew not just members, but family. Your laughter will forever echo the walls of Club Metro. Rest in peace my friend till we meet again. Prayers to Mary and all of Steve's family.
