I was fortunate enough to work with Steve for several years at KFC. He was one of my favorite bosses in my twenty years at KFC. He was always easy going and a very dedicated worker and was willing to take time to explain how and why we do things. I know one think for a fact. Heaven is getting one special man and KFC in heaven will be getting a great district manager. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Steve holds a special place in our hearts. We can still hear his lasting laugh and see his charming smile. He left his mark on so many. He inspired us to be better because he believed in us. He put his heart into what he did to become a great man, father, husband, manager, and friend. He will be missed and never be forgotten.
