I remember Steve growing up as a good friend of my brother Jerry. I remember him as being what I saw as a "Gentle Giant". He was always good to me, and had a heart as big as the great outdoors. I am very sorry for your loss.

I am sorry to hear the sad news of Steve passing. I too worked with him in southern area. Very nice guy and was fun to be with. I worked with his dad at warner brake. He told me to get out of that factory and put in for a job where Steve had gotten hired. WP+L. So I did. Im very fortunate to have worked with both. God bless all of ya. Take care. DISCO!

I was fortunate to have worked with Steve when he was a young apprentice at Wisconsin Power & Light. He was a hard working, sincere, fun loving young man with a heart as big as he was. I remember the one handed push-up contests he and Wayne would get into! My sincere best wishes to Steve's family and friends, I am sure he will be greatly missed. Steve Coon

Paula, Words cannot describe my grief for you and your family. What can I say about about Steve? Steve was a very good and true friend, and will be missed greatly. My first time meeting Steve was at the Lake Geneva office when Lon Kjendle and myself went there to do construction in that location. A large percentage of Steve's coworkers did not give as warm a welcome as he did, but Steve's attitude was if you work as hard as he would and just get the work done we'll get along just fine! Our personalities meshed immediately and the friendship grew from that day forward. The 3 1/2 years Lon and Myself spent in Lake Geneva was easily the best of my years spent at Alliant Energy as Steve was part of that. I will always cherish the times Steve and I stopped to have just a few beers, really just a few. Well that's enough of the rambling as I could go on and on. Steve my friend, you will most certainly be missed by me and so many people for the rest of our times. Paula, if there is anything I can help with PLEASE let met know as you and Steve will be in my thoughts and on my mind.
