My wife and I both knew Steve during our high school years at Farmington and summer baseball at Ricketts. He was always happy, full of life, and smiling for almost no apparent reason. Following graduation, we went our separate ways in life. But, we will always have fond memories of Steve. RIP in Heaven my friend. Steve and Holly CrawfordSan Antonio, Texas
