I am sadened to hear of Steve's passing. I was glad I got to speak with him at the last reunion. I remember going to the OSU branch with Steve in 1967-68 when it was held in the NHS buildings. THe Physics professor they sent us from the Tech Center was a tough old bird.  It made 2nd year classes on campus much easier.  My wife Karen and I send our condolences to his wife Linda. I hope the passage of time will make your loss more bearable.
