  1. Carolyn, so sorry to hear of your son’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you! May God be with you!

  2. Steve was a Ford nut to the end, much like my brother Jim. We had a grand ol time growing up in Halstead. I will miss you Steve – but we’ll see each other again in Heaven – Wayne R

  3. To Steve’s family, such a sad day to learn of Steve’s passing! He and I graduated in the same class in Halstead and so many of us 76’ers really enjoyed Steve’s sense of humor and fun & fast wit. He will be greatly missed.

  4. To the entire Basore family. Steve was a unique individual. He had a personality of one. I apologize for not being able to attend his passing. He will be missed by many, without a doubt. My prayers go out to all. God Bless you Steve. Hope they have Fords in Heaven. Your buddy forever, Rick. Love you
