Am sorry to hear of Steve's death. He worked at the standard gas station in Newberry on the corner of truman and newberry ave. Got to know him well growing up as my house was only one block down the street on Truman. I used to go to the station and shoot the bull with steve when he was working there. Didnt get to know him really well, but we did do some crazy stuff in Newberry, and will leave it at that. A good friend still, even though we lost touch with oneanother after we both graduated from NHS. Gods speed, Steve, you will be missed!
