    Many, many thanks from me to the folks who assisted during this tragedy.  Those of us at the rally who knew the sad news were able to keep it off social media until we were assured Steve’s family was notified first.  Duncan Cooper stepped up to the plate majorly in the aftermath on-scene, assisting another club member. Rich Frantz informed me, and I was able to inform most of our club members at the rally.  Roger Pivonka for coordinating back here in Cleveland with the Bay Village PD, and club members at the rally, Wally for posting the obituary, Ed Desimone for writing the nice tribute to be published in the BMW RA “On The Level” magazine, and Drew Alexander, Jill Veverka (rally chairs), and Sibley Poland (RA President) for their kind words of support, and for the touching mention of Steve at the rally’s closing ceremonies.  I was able to hoist one of Steve’s Yeungling Black and Tan beers with some friends in his honor and memory before I left WVA on Monday.   Also, many thanks to the Taylor County, WVA sheriff’s office, and the Grafton City Hospital.  Sincerest condolences to Steve’s family and friends, of which I am happy to count myself one of. RIP Steve.
