Steve, raised in Temple Hills, MD, was our “gentle giant.” He was as humble, gracious, kind and dignified as any man could hope to be. He was an excellent guitar player and loved to play along and sing to classic rock and country with his Peggy Ann. He was a huge believer in sunscreen. Despite always being slim and looking half his age, he loved to eat huge servings and was always up for a crab feast. Steve was an awful driver, but spent his last years working with cars every day. He lived a quiet life and had a peaceful wisdom that could give anyone perspective on even the most complex issues. In keeping with his easy-going spirit, he passed peacefully in his sleep after spending his last day with family. His deep compassion for his fellow man and animals alike set an example to which we all should strive. He will be deeply missed.
