    Steve was the first person I met when my family and I moved to Odessa in 1977. We knew each other all through school, and later in life reconnected on the softball fields, where we coached and watches our girls grow up together. I always enjoyed running into Steve and tammy around town, and catching up on family. Tammy and family, I offer my deepest sympathy to you all. The world is a lesser place without Steve in it. May God bless you all in this difficult time.
