I was so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. We played many rounds of golf together and shared great times. He was such a soft spoken, gentle man.
My condolences to his family of whom he spoke about quite often.

So sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I first met Steve when we worked at Canada Trust back in the 70’s. We shared a lot of laughs and would have contests to see who could serve the most customers during a shift. Convinced him to join a bowling league with me and Bob. He was a good bowler too! Glad we had a chance meeting at Upper Canada Mall after we moved to Newmarket. Steve will always be remembered as a dear friend.

I literally love every memory with you. There was always love. Always happiness. You were the kindest person I knew and you always saw the best in every situation and in everyone and taught me to do the same. You cared so much about all your friends and family and they always felt that. You never missed saying I love you in every conversation. Every phone call. Every message. But most importantly, I always felt it. Even though I'll always wish I did more, I hope you felt it too. In the past few years, I also saw that same love with your granddaughters. They loved you so much and it was magical to watch. Everyone you've met remembers your kindness and happy spirit and we'll all miss you more than you can ever know. Thank you for everything, Daddy. Even though it's hard to think of going on without you, I'll take you with me in every moment. Love Pammy

I have so many great memories of my dad, too many to list here; it's easier to mention the things I don't remember. I don't remember him holding any grudges** or blaming others. I don't remember him liking a movie unless it had a happy ending; I don't remember him ever letting more than a few minutes go by without making a silly joke; I don't remember receiving an email from him that wasn't full of semicolons. I don't remember a moment that he wasn't trying to live by the golden rule. I don't remember him recounting his childhood, in which he lost his own father at a very young age, with anything but positivity: how much fun it was growing up with his brothers and how much he admired the strength of his mother. I don't remember him ever failing to express gratitude to my mom, sister, and I for giving him "the greatest gift of all" of being a father. I don't remember him ever missing a chance to brag to Pam and I about my mom, about things we are well aware of; he was never going to let us forget. After I got married, Mia got the same treatment; he was always reminding me not to forget how lucky I am. I don't remember him expressing less than a genuine and sometimes bordering-on-invasive level of interest in the lives of my aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, friends, friends of friends, etc; he wanted happiness for everyone. In all the times that he was right and I was wrong, I don't remember him ever saying I told you so or hesitating to help me fix whatever mess I'd gotten into. I don't remember ever feeling for one second that I didn't have his support. I don't remember a round of golf I played that he wasn't eager to talk about, shot-by-shot, as soon as I got home. I don't remember him ever saying "no" to his granddaughters; even when every other adult had done so explicitly, Papa would hook them up. I don't remember him expressing more joy than when he recalled Aria telling him all the details of her three-year-old life on their drives to his house. I don't remember Eva once coming home from his house without reporting "Papa says 'I love you' ALL. THE. TIME." I don't remember him ever doing any less than his very best to take care of his family and make sure that we always knew he loved us. I don't remember ever not knowing that. 

I've never met anyone as great and as humble as my Dad. If you met him, you were lucky. I’ll never forget how lucky I am.
Love, Darryl

Tracy, the kids and I will always remember the fun times we had with Steve. We always enjoyed so many of the stories Steve would tell as he had an incredible memory of events. I spent a lot of my younger days golfing with Steve, he often was there to help me improve my game with his swings tips. Occasionally he would ask me for golf tips which I found amusing since he was such a professor of the game. Steve is already missed amongst our family. My friend, see you down the road. Cheers.
