The supervisors adjourned Tuesday's meeting in Steve's honor. He was not only a familiar sight there, but he earned the respect and admiration of the supervisors over many years of news coverage.
"He always had a smile. He was very responsive, and he had the patience of a newsman, he had the professionalism," said Supervisor Mike Antonovich. "He was very wonderful, one of a kind, and he's going to be sorely missed."
Steve died last Wednesday, two weeks after suffering a stroke. He was 58 years old.
