    I was sad to learn of Steve’s passing today. We were both colleagues at GSA serving in leadership positions. Steve was always the consumate professional and a pleasure to work with. REST IN PEACE, STEVE.

    Steve was an incredible man and an amazing colleague. I was lucky to learn from him during my time at GSA. He was generous with his wisdom, patience and humor. I loved hearing him speak of Elaine. It set such a wonderful example of devotion and love of family. Sending love to all of you.
