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.
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.
I will certainly miss Stephen ( Wingman ) Kady. Guess you will not physically make that stripper trip in November or the Pheasants trips on Tuesdays and Thursdays, But you will still be there in spirit my friend, rest in peace.
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.
