I am so sorry for your loss. Words cant mend a broken heart, but knowing he is at peace and not in pain anymore should help a little. Steve was a GREAT guy to work with. He loved playing his oldies on the dock every morning. Love you all Shafer family <3

Dearest Pat, It goes without saying that our hearts go out to you and your family. Steve was always so welcoming. We will miss his laughter and sharing stories around the kitchen table. He had such an influence on our Jonathan with weightlifting and healthy lifestyle that has followed him into adulthood. A model for the devoted family man and patriot. We have a lifetime of fond memories to treasure. We wish you peace.
