I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Steve. My prayers and thoughts are with him & the family. I has been many years since I visited in Lorain. Hope everyone is as well as can be expected. I regret I could not make the services as I am traveling in Florida. Best Regards Jim & Cyndy Baxter Huron, Ohio.

I'm sorry to learn of Steve's passing. I'm glad we had a chance to visit last October at the "old timer's" luncheon. Steve was a very bright and talented guy, our quarterback who led us to a perfect season. Deepest sympathy to the family of Steve Baxter.Joe Zima
