Steve and I worked at KeyBank together. I worked with Steve for 25 years. When I think of Steve I will always remember the “glass is half full” spirit he carried and how much energy he shared with each person he encountered. He will be greatly missed. God Bless
I JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH THE FAMILY, STEVE WOULD MAKE MY DAY WHEN HE WOULD COME INTO THE TRI-COUNTY OFFICE, KEY BANK. STEVE WAS ALWAYS SMILING AND THINKING OF A GOOD JOKE HE COULD TELL. WE TALKED ABOUT MY SON IN THE MARINE CORPS MASTER GUNNEY SGT NUGENT WHO HAS SERVED IN THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS FOR 16 YEARS. STEVE WAS A GENUINE PERSON WHO LOVED HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND WOULD REACH OUT TO EVERYONE. I WILL REMEMBER STEVE’S SMILE MOST OF ALL AND HOW HIS EYES WOULD LIGHT UP, A VERY KIND PERSON MAY GOD BLESS STEVE AND HIS FAMILY.
I am so sorry to hear about Steve. I just saw him about a month ago. I worked with him at KeyBank. Such a nice guy! Always had a kind word and a smile. God bless him!
Steve once asked me to sell “Split the Pot” tickets at his wake….that about says it all. Wow, what a special guy! He always made everyone laugh and smile. That was God’s Special Gift to Steve…to make everyone feel good about themself. And he used it well. I feel blessed to have had Steve in my life these past 50+ years. I will sorely miss you my friend. But in a short while we will back bass fishing in that big farm pond in the sky. Please give my soulmate a kiss from me and tell her that i love her. My deepest sympathy goes out to you Jean, and the Kids, and the Grands. All our love always. Frank and Kathy Alexander
I am so sorry for your loss. I used to work with Steve at Keybank. I now work at Kemba Credit Union with Brian Strasser.
Steve will go on in each of your hearts from his memories and love you had for him.
My prayers are with you and your family.
Please accept my sincere sympathy. I worked with Steve at KeyBank for many years and he was a good man.
My prayers are with you during this difficult time.
We are so sad for your loss. Please know tht we pray for your entire family during this difficult time.
We are in Florida and will be unable to attend the services but will be making a donation to the Bob Krueger Scholarship fund in memory of Steve.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time. We are going to miss Uncle Steve and his awesome cars and of course him barking like a dog at thanksgiving dinners. He was a great man and will never be forgotten.
