    My condolences to the Javens family. Both my daughter and son were students of Steve. Steve taught them skills of street survival . I knew Steve personally and enjoyed his passion for teaching all who wanted to know, how to be street smart and be a survivor. A great guy for sure.

    My deepest condolences to the family. Heart felt loss for my best friend and classmate. I will always treasure the memories of our expeditions of the outdoors (fishing), our summer family vacations and visits, and our younger days after graduation and learning together what life was to bring us. Good times were had my friend, you will be missed. Our life discussion of bass versus trout fishing will never be forgotten. My prayers and deepest sympathy to Kitty, Steven, Crystal, and his brothers. May you have comfort in knowing he is in God’s hands and enjoying the waters in heaven. God Bless!

    Oh Kitty, Crystal and Steven – we are heartbroken. Every October 1st we tell each other it is Steve’s birthday. All these years have gone by and we haven’t seen any of you but we still always thought of you all. Out of the blue Jim will bring up something he did with Steven or a job they worked together. He couldn’t play a game of pool without mentioning Steve. Even after all these years apart, I don’t think Jim has had anyone he considered a true friend as much as he did Steve. This really is showing us how precious life is. Steve will truly be missed by so many. He was a good man. Please stay strong
    together. All our love and prayers to all of your family.
