  • Rest in Peace

  • I’m so sorry. My friendship with Steve and Mark Horgan goes back 30 years, I think, when they catered an event at Lincoln Photography and I asked “who ARE you? Your food is so good!” They catered a beautiful shower for my daughter in law in the 80’s; they didn’t balk when I asked them to bake a “croquembuche”, a towering cream-filled pastry cake. We entered together and won two Point-to-Point tailgate picnic competitions. More recently, they catered the memorial gathering for my late husband, Lou, and out of their deep kindness, brought food to our house afterward for our family. For awhile I wrote and edited their newsletter and enjoyed the long leash they gave me for writing humorous copy. I will not forget Steve, and extend my deepest condolences to his family — Susan Dods

  • Steve was one of the nicest bosses I’ve ever had. I’ll miss saying hi to him whenever I stop at the restaurant. Thank you for everything, Steve.

  • What a Friend we have in Jesus. Even though we were not close like when we were kids, Steve remained a friend of mine and I, his friend.

  • I met Steve and Mark though you, Susan, 50 years ago. I just heard the news. I am stunned and saddened. What a beautiful person. Love to his beautiful Abby, so cute from Snuff Mill days. May he rest in God’s loving arms. Van
