I have the pleasure of working with Steve
for 16 years. He was the most knowledgeable, kindest and efficient person I knew. He loved what he did and took care of his staff. Most importantly I will remember his love and dedication to his family, his wife and for that he will be most remembered. Rest on Steve and say hello to Cheryl.

Sending my love and prayers to the family. Steve and I and the Kerzan boys, (all my cousins) had many Sunday afternoons in Westphalia, Indiana, at our great grandma Zan’s home and sometimes at Steve, Kenny, Bobby and Donnie‘s home. Now, all those names take me back to those wonderful fun summers in West Phalia and also bring with it the reality that some are gone and some of us still remain. Sending my love & my prayers, Pam
