I am very sorry to hear of Steve ("Rig's") passing and forward my condolences to his wife and family.   Steve and I were in the same home room / classes at Calvin Coolidge.   I consider Steve a good friend from then on through MHS and while I was attending BHJC.   He was person you could count on and we enjoyed some great times.  The years past and we went our separate ways living in different parts of the U.S., but I always knew if  we got together, our friendship would pick up as if nothing had passed.   We managed to miss attending the same MHS Reunions, so the catching up never happened.   I am sad for missing that opportunity.

Dear Steve's Family: My sincere sympthany to Steve's wife, children, grandchildren and friends. I remember Steve from when we both attended Calvin Coolidge Jr. High in Moline and then went on to MHS, graduating with the class of 1962. The smile on his face could light up the room and from Jr.High to High School his demeanor never changed.......always respectful, kind and happy. I remember seeing him at a couple of our class reunions and he still had those bright and kind eyes. Rest In Peace Steve and know that you made a difference while on this earth and that you will always be remembered for your caring ways. Sincerely, Lana Jacobs
