Last time I saw Steve, he was working UofU football games as an usher. He knew where Dick, Denis, Tom and I sat and would somehow make his way there at least once during the game, just to see if we were drunk (ok, to see how drunk). But that's been 7 or 8 years ago now.... damn.

Steve and I were very good friends since Junior High, and hadn't seen each other since graduating.
I work with his daughter, Candis at the LDS printing center and she got us somewhat reconnected. We talked on the phone a couple of times, and were trying to make time to see each other, but were unable to meet up before he passed away. I couldn't even make it to his funeral, as I was out of town.
He was a good friend, and is sorely missed. I wish we had gotten together again.
