    My thoughts and prayers are with Darlene and her family. I had the great opportunity to meet Steve at his grandson’s baseball games, his grandson and my son played baseball together. He was a regular and was always a great fan and fun to talk with.

  3. Mark, Kimberly & Mark Jr. Sapienza condolence:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Auntie Dar and her family. During a visit to California, Uncle Steve, my son and I met for dinner. We had a fantastic time telling stories from the past. I remembered when I was struggling with my tennis swing in high school and he was there to help me.
    We are so sorry for your loss.

  4. Holly Machina condolence:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Steven was full of fun & down to earth. It was a pleasure meeting him through his daughter Nikki. He will be missed.

  5. Cheryl condolence:

    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, but death at any age is too soon. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26).
