    Our love and thoughts are with the Altermans. Steve was a second Dad to me growing up and we consider the Altermans extended family. I'll never forget the classic kippah and bow tie. Steve will always have a special place in our heart and undoubtedly played a major impact in our lives. We'll forever remember him making me change my order from being a grilled cheese and fries at the horseradish with a prom date with me. It was not classy enough to order, so it was changed to salmon and mashed potatoes. Love you Steve
