In December of 2014, Steve was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer. His daughter being recently engaged, the last thing my dad wanted to do was to see her married. Thanks to his medical team, he was able to live to see it happen - passing away two days after her wedding in May of 2016.
To honor my dad's life and work, the family decided to try and create a scholarship for students going into the field of respiratory therapy. Having spoke with SUNY Upstate in Syracuse, New York, if we were able to raise $10,000 for a scholarship, the award could be sustained as a trust managed by the university, providing $1,000 a year to help someone continue my father's legacy of kindness, warmth, and dedication to helping others.
