    Last time I saw Steve he was a skinny little blond haired kid. His brother Joey And I were friends along with Bob,Pete Pinner,Reilley and others. This was around 1958. Neither life(or death) is truly fair. My most sincere condolences to the family(and friends)of that skinny little blond haired kid.
