    Steve was a generous man.

    Steve helped me get my first real job after high school. He introduced me to Butch who was the head of the labor union. I got a pipeline job in western Nebraska. Besides being great pay, it was exciting to leave home and take on a new adventure. After the labor jobs, he gave me a job working for his company. He genuinely loved talking with his customers. We often heard him belly-laughing loudly from his office. After Steve sold the business to his father, I continued working there and spent many lunch hours talking with Frank and Margaret. It was very apparent that they loved him very much. One funny story Frank told me was when Steve was 16. Frank was leaving for work on morning and his car wouldn’t start. He lifted the hood to see what was wrong and found the battery was gone. Evidently the night before Steve’s car needed a battery so he took Frank’s. Typical 16 year old – not thinking about how his dad would get to work the next morning.

    Who would allow his 20 something brother-in-law to take his Harley for the day? Steve. He let Kay and I take his red Harley one afternoon and we had a blast.

    Because of Steve’s relationship with Butch, we were able to use the union hall. We had my stag party there, and Steve was there enjoying it with me (keeping me out of trouble like a big brother would). When the bucket came around to buy raffle tickets, he didn’t put 10’s or 20’s in. He put 100’s. When I had Pete’s stag party there, Steve again showed his generosity. I had given Pete all of the take for the night ($20 at the door and all the money the house won at the craps table, etc). It was several thousand dollars. Instead of banking it for a nice honeymoon, Pete took it to the poker table. Pete and Steve and others played poker all through the night until the sun came up. Pete said he was down many times through the night. Steve could have gotten up from the table, taking all of Pete’s money but he didn’t. He kept on playing to be sure he didn’t walk away with any of Pete’s money (just the others at the table).
