    I first met Steve when our families shared summer vacations together at Cedar Point in the early 60's. We then reacquainted in the in the early 70's as we shared an interest in the automotive business, and attended college together at Northwood University in Midland, Michigan. Steve was outgoing and the life of the party! A great guy! He will be missed. RIP Steve.
