I only learned recently of Steve’s passing and was unaware of the memorial service until afterwards. I considered him a friend and colleague as our paths crossed regularly on campus and in Mahomet were we both lived and raise our families. Steve made major contributions in the area of grain science and was a major factor in given the University of Illinois a role in the global grain processing world. It is truly a loss to humanity that his health deteriorated far too early and he had to endure the limitations that imposed.
When I think of Steve, I just think of a really great guy. I'm proud to have known him and am happy to be a Theta Chi brother. "Extend a Helping Hand" was one of the many wonderful life lessons we received from Theta Chi. My thoughts are with Steve's family. Bill Samsoe
