As a former resident of Brownstown, and a St Michael's school graduate I had a long time relationship with Steve and his family. My sister Veronica lived on Kartes Street and when I would visit her I would occasionally stop and se Steve. Support of family and friends eases the pain of loss. We will keep him in our thoughts and prayers.
