I can pull out so many memories with such ease from youth to adulthood. It is never hard to remember your voice on the phone Hey it's your brother. A hero as I saw you, and a loyal family man. Miss you Steph.

Time is a confusing thing: it can seem to pass quickly so that a year is yesterday. You forget a bit about what you have been doing as a moment of great impact is rekindled. Although I think of my beloved brother every day, and know that time has passed, it feels as if yesterday I was there in a hug and "I love you".

To the Delmotte family,

My deepest condolences as I just heard about this today. I had known Steve and worked with him as a client for many years when he was both and Sargent and Lundy and at PSEG. Steve was a kind and smart man and was always talking about his family. We would always discuss our families, both the good and the many challenges along the way. Steve actually bought his Silver Honda sports car from me many years ago and he always reminded me that he loved that car. He will be missed and I am appreciative that I got to know him.

Jan, Sarah and Tina,

I have thought about and prayed for all three of you this week. I will pray for you tomorrow, that the service will be a precious memory and comfort to you. When I think of Steve, I will always remember his sitting with Christina and gently caring for her when you visited us in Arizona. I'll also remember the time, years before, when he took us on his catamaran. Love you guys.

Our family is thinking of you today. We wish we could be there. We only met Steve once, the weekend of Paul's mom's funeral, but we remember Steve's gentleness and kindness, especially in the way he treated and cared for Christina. These qualities will always remind us of God's love, gentleness and kindness toward us. We are praying for you today and in the days to come as you learn to live without him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I wish I had gotten more time to know you, but I have come to know your daughter Sarah very well and I'm certain she radiates your love, your intelligence, your compassion and your care for family above all else. May your soul rest eternal and may you swiftly enter the gates of Heaven. My love and prayers for all your family.

Oh if I had known I would have been there today. I admired Steven so much even though I didn't know him very well. What I know is what makes a good man great - being a loving and devoted father and husband like Steven.

Steve is my first cousin, we are a year apart. he is the finest human being I have known all my life. Such vast memories of his family coming to Roseville MI and our family going to Glen Burnie MD and then Tioga PA. Running in sprinklers, swimming in pools, reading comics, making jokes. I admire his brilliance, work ethic, love of family, thoughtfulness as son, his role of doting dad and caring husband. I can imagine that his grandparents were there to meet him and guide him home when he passed from this earth. Love you cousin Steve, always will.

I grew up next door to the Delmotte's. For many years Steve was part of our huge play group. I lived on a corner of a circle, and that's were we played a lot of games. Our most fiercest game was kick ball. Steve would always be the pitcher. He'd run his mouth the entire game, doing the best to distract you. And of course he'd do his best to cheat! Some games we spent more time yelling and arguing balls and strikes then actually kicking and running the bases. After school was a reverent time in the Delmotte house for Steve. That's when Star Trek was on. Steve would be in the basement, right dab front and center of the TV. If Cam & I were talking, we'd get a stern look (more a look of I'm going to hurt you), and you knew you'd better be quiet. Steve was such a fan. Steve was a kind soul and my brother from another mother. Rest in peace Steve, you are in my thoughts and prayers for a safe and wonderful journey. I'm sure you'll find Spock.

To the Delmotte Family, My deepest sympathies on your loss. Having worked with Steve for many years at Sargent & Lundy, I knew him as a loving father and husband. We spoke often of each others families as we watched each others children grow, comparing pictures along the way.
Camille Delmotte left a message on May 1, 2017:
Steph, you were my brother whom I love but also one of my best friends. We spent so much time together growing up and you taught me a thing or two: throw and bat a baseball, string a fishing line, fix the chain on my bicycle, make a slingshot from a coat hanger, clean a carburetor, sail a catamaran and racing boat, plant strawberries, ride a motorcycle, shoot pool, play ping-pong. And later, when we both grew up, we stayed close and shared many fun and sometimes tragic times. It's an endless list and I will miss our time together. All the thoughtful gifts you gave over the years bring me joy to see, but I won't need anything to remember you. Sail away brother. Bye-o.

My heart goes out to the whole Delmotte family, immediate and extended, for your loss of Stephen. It was a lifetime ago that I met him, but I do remember that he was a great guy who clearly loved his family very love, thoughts and prayers are with you all! May you find peace and fill your hearts with loving, cherished memories.

Cam and I went to college together and I attended many Delmotte gatherings during July 4th! I'm sure I must've met her brother! Prayers to he whole family.
