  • So very sorry for your loss. Stephen was an amazing peer, and very special friend. It was a pleasure and an honor working with him, to see how he inspired others and truly became family with his teams. I sat near him and could hear his inspiring speeches and his team engagement. I learned so very much working every Sunday in November with him. I have never met you but feel I know you from his warm stories about you and the family. He was truly one of the best leaders I have worked with. He will be missed more than words can say. Tina, you and the rest of the family are in our heart felt thoughts and prayers.

  • I am truly sorry for your loss. I have worked with Stephen at Bank of America for the last year. He was one of the nicest people I have ever worked with.

The bond he had with his team also shows how great he was as a leader. I could fill this entire page with the stories of his acts of kindness to people who had the pleasure of working with him. He will certainly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • Tina,
    I just stopped by your NC house yesterday with my family . I was shocked to see you had moved a month ago! I wondered how I would now find you ? I ​was sad to think I had lost my longest best friend Tina 😢
    Then I asked Ilana if she could find you or Steve on FB . She couldn’t find either of you. I Hoped that no one died . Ilana searched and found sadly Steve’s obituary.
    Steve was such a kind man and I was happy you found him ❤ . And I knew that you both had found love and peace in each other. I am so sorry for your loss. I was hoping you moved in with your mother in law . I miss you and hope to get together with you soon. Please try to contact me through my cell phone number which is : 302-565-8140 . I will be waiting to hear from you soon . Love your oldest and hopefully dearest friend Joy 👭

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I believe I used to babysit Steve back in the 70’s. I am trying to find his mother, Darlene Naumowich Throckmorton. I believe she remarried and her last name was Evens. I am her cousin Connie Johnson Ridgaway Schafer and have been searching for her for years. I know that Steve was born in Coatsville Pa and that she still lived in the area. I am so sorry to bother you with this in your time of sorrow, but this is the closest I have come to finding her. If you would so kindly contact me at [email protected] or (302) 362-6686.
    Thank you so Very much,
    Connie Schafer.
