 I was saddened to hear of Steve's passing. We shared a locker junior and senior year. He was one of the sweetest guys I knew. Rest in peace, Steve.

 While I was in college in Boise, Steve was a bartender at this tiny little bar across the street from the campus....The Suds Tavern. I was a broke student and often went in there without enough money for a beer. Steve wouldn't take my money even when I had it. It was a horseshoe shaped bar, and seated about 25. There were pool tables and pin ball machines. The place was always wild on nights that Steve was working. And the bar was always full of women watching Steve like cats watch birds. He was a sight too, with those tree trunk arms, pouring beers and sliding them down the bar. The highlight of the night for the women was when the keg went dry and Steve would muscle the empty keg out, hoist it over his shoulder and disappear into the back, and then come out with a full keg on his shoulder. I swear women swooned at the bar. It was amazing. And always that mile wide smile. Norman Rockwell would have had a field day.

Steve had the biggest and loudest motorcycle in Idaho too. I could hear that bike from anywhere in town. I knew what time he went to work and I could hear him when he got off work. 

Rest in peace Ben.

Sad to hear of his passing. He was always well liked.

We had some "fun" times in the 80's when Steve was a bouncer at the Alley in Highwood.
