Joyce and family- I am so sorry to hear of Stephen’s passing. You have my heartfelt sympathy
Condolences to the entire family.
Steve was part of the USS Jallao (SS-368) family in the middle 60’s and I will attempt to get the ones still in contact the news of Steve’s passing.
God Bless You All.
Steve was a wonderful USNA classmate. Great football player on the #2 in the nation team in 1963, led by Roger Staubach who passed a lot to Steve. As a fellow submariner, and friend, I offer my sincere condolences and prayers to the family. Sailor, Rest Your Oars.
Steve and I entered the Naval Academy in the summer of 1960. We bcame good friends and played together on the Navy football team. He came to Miami and held a sword at our wedding ceremony in June 1964, something we have always appreciated. He was a true friend. Our condolences to the family.
May the beautiful memories of your loved one provide solace and strength to you and your family during this difficult time. May you also find much comfort in God’s promise of life without end on a Paradise earth.
