Steve was a great guy, my nephew, that will be missed greatly. Even though we didn’t keep a close family tie, I have fond memories of him at the time I used to live at my brother’s home. He was a quiet and gentle soul. Rest in peace dear Steve until ressurection day.

I have known Steve when he started at Lemont Engineering in Lincolnwood. a few decades ago. He told me many good things about his wife Ilona, She was the light of his life. I remember when he started working in the assembly department a few decades ago and was extremely good. Our mother company had us make many Serrator machines for them, we worked off their blueprints. Steve saw several errors on the blue prints prior to making any of the parts which had many tolerances. He reported these to his foreman and saved us from making the items wrong which saved us thousands of dollars. At that point the company realized that he was extremely valuable. Many of us at work will miss Steve dearly. When I return to work I will miss seeing him very much.
