I am so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I worked with him many years ago at Wall to Wall Sound and have wonderful memories from that time. Steve was funny, kind, and a joy to be around.

My heart is broken hearing the news of Steves passing. Working with him at Wall to Wall Sound/The Wall for years was more like being with family. We have such fun memories of him that we'll cherish forever. I always thought that I would see him again but now he is with our other Wall family members somewhere beyond having a huge reunion. Though my tears are heavy, I will always carry you in my heart Steve...xoxo (also loving thoughts to his wife Debbie)
