Steve was my first friend. We had many great times & adventures growing up in Chesterton. Steve was always "larger than life" -not just in stature, but in his presence & personality. When we hung-out, I would feel like his 'mini-me', but what impressed me most about Steve was his fearlessness, his strong sense of right, & his mind. Steve was one of the most brilliant people that I've ever known -he could remember amazing details, & he always seemed to be a dozen steps ahead of any situation. Growing up; it was always a special treat visiting Steve, his folks were always welcoming & tolerated our shenanigans. Mrs. Bross would hook us up with pop & snacks when we would 'camp-out' in their huge R.V. -I loved the cheese popcorn (oh, & remember that huge station wagon?). Mr. Bross would always treat me like an adult, & later in life he would always, sincerely welcome me whenever I came to visit him. Steve's sisters, Nancy & Carol, also tolerated us well. I remember Steve & I had a few missions to regain control the Club House -& then immediately "de-cootie" it afterwards. If it wasn't riding the boonie bikes, it was riding the horses, or white-knuckle gripping a toboggan that was being dragged behind a screaming snowmobile, or just building snow forts -we had a lot of fun. I appreciate those memories, & I love Steve for sharing his life with me. I was proud to be his Best Man although I had just an hours notice and held up their ceremony ...he chuckled when I apologized about not throwing him a Bachelor Party. Steve had a good heart. Steve bought and renovated his Grandmother's house, where he, Debbie, Amanda and Nicole lived; he made it a very nice home. Steve's grandson Kolton will miss out knowing his Grandpa Bross.
Somewhere along the way we grew up, life was no longer as fun & carefree. Stuff like responsibilities, priorities, & other issues started to affect our now adult life. Eventually, serious health matters would totally control Steve's life. Steve was one of the most honest, fearless, & brilliant men that I have ever known. It was an extreme shame that he was shut down so early & suffered for so long.
Steve, enjoy your well-deserved peace, and thank you for sharing your Life with me. Just know that you are loved, that your Life mattered, and that you personally & positively affected so many people.
