I knew Steven, Charles (Chuck) and Scotty. I worked with Scotty and was a pallbearer at his funeral. I am very sorry to hear of Steven's passing. I did not know him as well as Scotty or Chuck, but found him to be a nice guy and pleasant to be around.
I would like to contact Chuck just to say hello. If anyone can put me in contact with him I would appreciate it. I can be reached at: bubbaslater@aol.com. Rest in Peace, Steven.
