Ted and I are so very and deeply sorry to hear of Steve's passing. Steve was a very good and dear friend not only to us but to many people. He had a big and good heart always helping someone. Steve and Ted met over their love of fishing. They went for the big ones and entered in fishing tournaments. They even belonged to a fishing club together.

To me, Steve was not only a good friend but like a brother. We were computer pals e-mailing back and forth. Steve will be sadly missed and never forgotten.

Rest in peace, dear friend.

Sincerely,
Marie & Ted Bukaske
