    Sorry I didn’t see you off old friend from times that are still a little foggy. You always amazed me with your mechanical abilities. I can’t believe the good times we had and how little money it took to have them. You were too fun.

    Good-bye Steve, Your journey of pain and sadness has come to an end. Now, your soul is in a better place. May you be with the ones you love and others that love you and have gone before. Healthy, happy, singing, telling funny stories and listening to your favorite music. You’ll always be my baby brother.

    May I say how grateful I am to the Folsom/May Funeral Home in Norwood, MA, especially Deniece Chaparro, who went above and beyond to accommodate our family. Through her efforts, my brother got the dignity in death that escaped him in life. Her comforting yet professional manner made a very difficult time as easy as possible. Thank you.

    After All There Wasn’t Much We Could Do To Save You. You Were Who You Were – And Wanted To Party Till The End – And Did Just That!!! Official Cause Of Death Ruled As “Natural.” Coronary Artiosclorosis/Chronic Ethanolism.

    Goodbye to a roommate who always had a good word to say whatever his mood may have been. I hardly knew you but I could tell you had a good heart. May you rest in peace.

    R.I.P. my old friend. Just did a web search and found out you are no longer with us. Sad. I’d like to say to your family “I remember Steve as kind man with a big heart”!!

    Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts, I cannot believe it has been nine years since he has been gone (although his spirit seems to live on with the same sense of humor he always had.) His sister Leslie has since joined him this past February 20l8.

    Wow I am surprised of your passing and saddened greatly. We all knew how much of a gentle giant, brilliant man, and a kind sole you were. I hope you and my late brother Rick are up stairs partying like days of old. As my older brothers friend I had always looked up to you guys. You are missed my friend.
    Rest In Peace
