I'm at a loss for words. It is a sad day indeed but we should always remember what a remarkable man he was, what he left behind, and more importantly the truly inspirational lessons he taught us.
But more important than what he was and what he meant in the eyes of us in the geek community, Steve was a father, a husband, a brother, and close friend to those fortunate enough to have been a part of his life. My heart goes out to them during this difficult time.
