My Dear Brother, one of the Boyz from Cu Chi 1969 -1970.
I shall miss you very much my dear friend. Occasionally you meet a man that is honest, strong and a real friend. You know it right away. Steve, Stu, Big Joe, Little Don, Butch, Pops, Jimmy Golden, Clancy and I were the original Boyz from Cu Chi, Republic of Vietnam.
Clancy, one of our friends, always said we felt safe when Steve was around. Steve's sense of humor and laughter was contagious. Always on time for a care package, (hated anchovies) liked cold, adult beverages and was without sheets thanks to Pop's.
Steve, we Love You! You played an important part with all of us young ones.
I shall never forget you my dear brother-in-arms. Rest in Peace.

Cheryl,our thoughts and prayers are with you and the ones whom you love.

With every good wish – John& Suzi
