    So sorry to hear of Steven’s death. We both attended school together starting at Isanti Elementary. Steven was my first crush in first grade; although, I don’t believe he ever knew it. Condolences to his family.

    I also am deeply saddened to learn of Steve’s passing. I knew Steve O. from Church at Elim. He was a larger than life character who could quickly defuse any situation & bring smiles to everyone. I lost track of Steve while he was serving in the Army. But I have often thought of him and wondered how he was applying his leadership & people skills. I recall many fun times we had together as young men & will greatly miss being able to reminisce all those stories with Steve. My condolences to his loved ones.
