  • Corrine, Josh and Amanda, you have my deepest sympathies. Steve was an awesome guy. We worked together for 38+ years and Steve was one of those guys everyone enjoyed being around. Working with him always seemed to make the time at work go faster. He was so witty and funny … and did his job extremely well, which made everyone else’s job easier. There was never a dull moment when you were around him, though. Countless times he had us in stitches. I am sure you all have similar memories of him so cherish those as you look back on his life. He left his mark!

  • We are so sorry for the family’s loss. May he rest in peace with God. Ron & Malena Puster.

  • I also had the pleasure working with Steve at PGW. Being part of the Airwall’s back on 2&6 HE it felt like family when I started but when he retired, things changed. He was a good man. He had a heart of gold! I am so sorry for your loss.

  • I worked with Steve numerous times when I came to Crestline. I was a PPG Tipton employee that worked with the Harmerville Reasearch team. We would come in for process support and Steve would give us 110% and also would make us smile and laugh very hard. Great guy that shared his experience with us and made us feel at home. Sorry for your loss,keep his memories tight in your heart.

  • So sorry to learn of this loss. Our prayers for comfort and peace to those he left behind.

  • Knew Steve from PPG – he was one of those rare people who leaves memories which all bring a smile! You could always trust him to be honest and kind and he seemed to want to always make others happy. One of the best!

  • I worked with Steve on the VAW’s when he ran 6 and I ran 2. There was never a dull moment when Steve was around. His quick wit and humor was appreciated by all. He was also a terrific artist. I still have drawings he gave me at my retirement. Ride on Bro!
