Steve was a good person and I know he really was passionate about chess. I never really knew him except only though local tournaments but he was always willing to talk to you about anything chess related. He was a great editor for the ACN was fair to everyone. He fought the good fight and I am sure he is arguing with Bent Larsen about how to play b3 right now. God Bless you Steve.

I'm still in disbelief, I live nearby Steve's home.. and every time I've go down his street since, things just don't feel right (more like a chunk of the universe was just stolen out of our world and a vacuum left in it's place), which sent me back re-reading over a poem that I wrote several years ago..

I guess it's why life has that eternal quality of a quest for answers along a voyage of experiences, where in most scenario's.. the answers are within each of us as part of those experiences. Steve no doubt was one of those contributions to all our worlds.
(Rest in Peace my friend, while your memories live on forever.. 1. b3 !)
