Words cannot express how much I will miss him. He was a treasure. The world is a better place because he was in it. I am forever thankful Steve was my friend. Gone for now, but I'm sure we'll meet up later. ♥️

Steve taught me so many values and what it meant to "truly" stand up for what you believe in. I will always remember Steve and Marys marathon phone call's and the laughter and happiness it brought not only them but myself. My love and prayers for Gary, Mary, and the entire Rassel family. Steve was a true blessing to everyone.
