Memorial contributions can be made to either St. John's UMC Endowment Fund or Hope Food Pantry of Austin.


Those of us who were around when steven was active - will remember a man of strong principle and opinions Smiley

He was always ready to help a new member and always made an effort to greet new members
He was never shy about anything he disagreed with.
It's fair to say he and I had  a few run ins over the years.
But I love arguing and Steven was always a good opponent for a great argument.

On reflection, I've missed his input in the last couple of years.

I'm sure older members have their own memories of him and it would be great if you could share them here.

Enjoy the great pebble beach in the sky mate, I will miss you, you old fart Smiley

Gone but not forgotten. He was already a veteran of Slinging.Org when I got here. I always appreciated his posts. RIP Steven and thanks for everything. You definitely enriched this forum and this world is worse off for no longer having you.

Steven's posts were always interesting and informative.  As many of you know, I often disagreed with Steven.  He was a tough, capable, and worthy adversary in a heated debate.  RIP, sir. You will be missed.
