    My name is John McPhee and I worked with Steve at Dominion back in 1996-98. What can I say, he was one of the best workers I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Yes he did have his moments of terror where he could clean a shelf of soup off with one swoop of his arm then spend half the night putting it back. Good times we had and many laughs.One time when I just started at the job Steve told me I had a helper that night. Low and behold this guy had terret syndrome. He’s down at one end of the aisle dropping f bombs.Hilarious’ we got a good chuckle over it. It’s unfortunate we lost contact over the years but I’m glad he’s not suffering anymore. His job now will be to look after us old farts down here until we punch the clock. You’ll be missed ,so god bless you Steve and for Godsake RELAX. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there but I have family issues myself.
