FTE this day lost a great friend and one who believed so much in this place ...our loss is great but nowhere near the loss felt by his family....prayers are sent.

Life is not only time……paradoxically, it is the denial of time!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
When you are down...look up...get up...and don't ever give up....
Word's obviously starting to spread as I was just alerted to this in the PA Chapter.
Steve was truly one of the good guys and it was truly a privilege and blessing to know him and have spent time with him in person on several occasions here at Truck Nationals in Carlisle. He was an encouragement to me when I first started building and showing the Brahma Bull.
Steve, I'll miss you brother. Indy's for you.
Edit to add the pic: This photo's from the 2012 Carlisle (PA) Truck Nationals - last time I got to hang out with Steve in person. Just to set scene, he's handing me (left, black t-shirt and camo hat) the FTE People's Choice award for that year's event. His example taught me about being a humble winner and gracious when I fall short, and I will always carry that with me.

Damn. Just damn. Steve was one of the coolest, most laid back dudes I've met. It was an honor to call him friend. I'm glad to have hung out with him a few times in person on his east coast visits. He will be truly missed. Mine and Michelle's hearts are with Gail and the rest of the family. The pups send their love too brother. There needs to be something with his name on it. He helped so many and asked for nothing in return. Just an honest, true dude.
Very sorry about the loss. Prayers and thoughts to his family and friends. Was always helpful and will be missed

Very, very sad news indeed. I personally did not have the honor of meeting Steve but through the interactions on the site, I consider him to be a good friend and brother. This just shows how fragile life is and we need to live it to its fullest each and every day. RIP brother, you will be truly missed.
