I am sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I began working with him when he was in the Training Dept back in the 80s and also over the years when he was in International. Steve was always very detail orientated and very dedicated. I appreciated working with him on every project. He was a wonderful co-worker.

We spent many enjoyable family gatherings talking with Steve and he will truly be missed. Sue, Paul, and Bob you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Steve was truly one of a kind: helpful, technically gifted, always willing to share with others. He built a worldwide reputation in the welding industry using those skills. Equally important, he was as giving to his family and community as he was to his profession. Over the years we've kept in touch via email trading tales of health, rumors in welding, and family. I truly regret that I never got to see Steve reading to elementary school kids; every time I think about it I smile. Steve was one of my guiding lights in the great WI experience. My wife and I got to know Sue through company events and a shared adult Spanish class. He was well-loved and respected, and he leaves behind a family who carries forward the same values.

Oh Sue I am soooo sorry to hear of your loss. At the same time I am so thankful to have had that quick passing greeting with him as you so kindly reintroduced us at Jack Arter's funeral. He had such a kind gentle countenance I will not forget. Will remember you in my prayers always. Hopefully in time we will connect🙏
