Steve and I share the same 3 initials and the first 2 names. We were life long friends that in later years grew apart.
I'm so saddened that I didn't try to find out where Steve and Sue moved so as to visit them. Now it is too late.
Going back years to when we were both in high school I wonder if anyone will remember the Sinclair Dinosaur, the spray paint and the rain. Long story to be shared by some of Steve's old friends. I miss you Steve.

This was really sad news to hear. Steve was definitely one of a kind! It’s been a while, but he lead me on a few trail rides around Hillsdale lake out in Kansas. I’ll never forget swimming with Caramel, one of his horses, while out at the lake. The last thing I remember was him trying to hook me up with someone at one of his events at the stable lol Rest In Peace Steve!
