My condolences to Jeri and everyone in Steve’s family. Steve and I were best buddies when we were growing up although we lost touch a bit since high school. I remember taking the “L” to Wrigley Field numerous times every summer to watch the Cubs with him, having pizza at Don and Angies before going to the Blackhawks game with Steve, my dad and Merritt. One that Steve never let me forget was when he hit a homerun off me in Little League. Steve was a great guy and a loyal friend and it hurts me that he is gone so early.

Real friendship always stands the test of time. Such is the case with my life long friendship with Steve.

Having known both Steve and Jeri since early grade school we have shared many memories of growing up together. Steve and I started Kindergarden together, attending mutual friend's birthday parties. We only lived about two blocks from one another. Neighborhood pick up games at Lowell School. We spent more time together in high school, summers in college, and then continued our friendship long distance once I moved to Colorado.

Steve was my eye's and ear's while my Mom was still living alone in her house. Steve would help my Mom with little household problems when ever I would call. Steve would often take the time to visit with my Mother and share a cup of coffee with her. It always made bher day to see Steve. Steve always had a kind way that I have always appreciated about him.

On my many trips back to Chicago a big part of the trip was being able to spend time with the Powles family. We got to catch up with each other and enjoy a much missed Chicago diet of real carry out food together.

Of course I will miss seeing Steve, we havge always shared a mutual respect for one another and has been the foundation of a life long friendship.
