I didn't kow Steve as much as I knew of him and that was mostly from Junior Highschool. At an age when "kids will be kids" Steve seemed to be one of the more honorable and respectful "kids". For that I always admired Steve; Ike. God speed on your journey, Steve.

I'm sorry to hear about Steve's passing. Most of my memories go back to Cornelia, going to each others birthday parties, and playing hockey up at the rink. He was always the first guy chosen when picking teams! Jeff said it well, Steve was always an honorable person and well respected. Several years ago I heard about his strong faith and that gave me comfort. I know he will be missed by many.

Sad to hear that Steve has passed. I met Steve on the ice during the Edina Bantam and Midget Hockey years. We started as teammates and during High School we became Classmates, Linemates and Roommates. ‘Ike’ was my roommate during the 1972 State High School Hockey Tournament. I have fond bittersweet memories of that time with him. Other classmates have described Steve as honorable and respected. That was my experience as well. Steve had a noticeable presence when he entered the room or stepped on the Ice. He was ‘The Man’.  
RIP ‘Ike’.

Sorry to hear of Steve's passing.  I always liked him, both as a person and as a hockey player.  I remember how impressed I was when I heard that he was turning down alll the hockey scholarship offers he received and giving up high pressure D1 hockey.  Instead he went to the U, like me, and I ran into him from time to time playing hockey in the intramural league at the U.  He seemed happy and confident at the time.
