  1. My condolences to the family of Steve. The picture of Steve with his hat on is ‘so Steve’, just as I remember him. Steve was a key member of the JMSS basketball team, was a good teammate and a pleasure to coach. He was liked by all.

  5. I met Steve while at Loyalist College in Belleville. There was immediate attraction between us and we shared a lot of fun times. I later discovered Steve was paying for an engagement ring for me but l guess it wasn’t meant to be. We lost touch for a long time but we reconnected again about 5 years ago and lm so thankful l got to see him again.
    Steve l have always loved you and pray your at peace now in a wonderful place.
    Love Ruth
