I grew up with Steve in Estherville, Iowa. When we played in Band and Drum and Bugle Corp together. He and I also were in a local rock band called The Sensational Soul Company. I played Trumpet and Steve played Trombone. I emailed some of Steve's friends who no longer live in Estherville. Thoughts and Prayers for the family.
