  1. I worked with Steve for almost 11years at SPARC. He was my favorite resident and my friend. I took Steve to many Cardinal games and a Bear’ game. He was a wonderful person and made me feel like I truly made a difference in someone’s life.
    It saddens me to see his passing.

  2. To the Dameron family, I cannot tell you how much it saddens me to learn of Stephen’s passing. At one time, I was his job coach working in the community along with some other individuals. I found him to be a joy to work with and he was definitely a hard worker. We had some fun off of the job, too. I can remember taking he and some of his fellow workers (with permission, of course) to have pizza, breakfast and even to the ballpark here in Springfield. I will never forget him and his talk of the Cardinals and especially the Chicago Bears back when they had a very good team. Stephen was a class act and I am glad to have had him in my life. He will be sorely missed.

  3. Sheryl and family,
    I am saddened by the passing of your brother. I pray the Holy Spirit to give you all comfort and understanding during this time of loss. My love to you all.
    God’s Blessings be upon you.
