My name is Mitchell Hahn. Steve worked for my father at Superior Products Plating in Churubusco from 1972-1979 until the business was destroyed by fire in 1979. His brothers Bob and Tom also worked for my father. I last saw Steve about 20 years ago on a visit to CC, as I live outside of Chicago, about 20 years ago when I ran into him in a store. We chatted for a few minutes. Steve was a vital cog at my father's business. He could weld and fix anything. He was a very good man and helped mentor a lot of us young kids that worked for my dad even though he was only 8 years older than most of us. I remember one time where he created a tool to help us close a valve that was in a hard to reach place. He got out his torch, cut some metal pieces, welded them together, and the tool worked. I had many a lunch with Steve at that greasy spoon next to the fire department. I can't remember the name of the place now as it is long since closed. I contacted my father who is now 81 tonight to let him know as he is in California. He offers his condolences also. I'm very sorry for your loss.
Sorry to hear of Steves’ passing, Cindy you’re in our prayers. Always enjoyed seeing Steve when we were in the area. Love to all.
So sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers Cindy...please know I'm thinking about you. Clara Lott Leininger
May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will walk beside you in your journey of grief.
