    I hired in with Steve at GM in 1975. I remember him being a Rebel without a Cause at work. So much fun and so good to many friends/employees. We had some great chats. Condolences to his family, Heaven gained a GOOD one.

    "Stevie" and I were best friends when we were very young. I was thinking about him all last week and thinking about the good times we shared. I wish I could have talked to him before his passing to talk about our friendship and memories. He was a great guy. I will miss you, my friend.
