    Marilyn & Frank....

    Steve will be missed by all who knew him. One very classy fellow. I enjoyed many early morning rounds of golf with Steve.....hit the ball and go......it was hard to keep up with that walking machine.

    Our prayers are with you and your family.

    Love the Martins, Chris & Ann

    Mrs. Gecan and Frank.  Our condolences on the passing of your husband and dad. As an honorary member of the Gecan family for over 57 years I have a Steve story to share. I spent many a night with Paula. Every morning around 6:00 am Steve would get up for work and crank on the stereo for all our listening pleasure. I guess he figured since he was up we all should be up.  I hope he does the same for Paula, Victor and Kris every morning.   Love you. Pam

    Marilyn and family:  My deepest sympathies in the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, and brother.  I have many fond memories of Steve.  I worked at Wood Brothers back in the days and also had a connection with you both at church and sidewalk conversations.  My funniest memory was when Steve pulled into St. Mary's Parking lot for mass in the Mustang.  I said nice ride and he said he got what he wanted  and Marilyn got her Beetle.  I will remember all of you in my daily prayers at mass and in the Rosary.  Rejoice he is free and hitting those golf balls in heaven with his buddies that have gone before him,
