Our deepest sympathies to you and the rest of family. When we heard of his diagnosis, our hearts sank. I had just lost my father to pancreatic cancer and his scenario just replayed in my mind. Good people don’t deserve it but obviously somebody has a different plan. Blade will never be forgotten. We have so many memories together whether it’s on or off the softball diamond. He’s such a great person to hang out with and that will be missed. Much love to you and family, Beef

Steve and I go wsy back to my age 7 and he was 9. We played baseball together at that time. He was much better than the rest of us. He was intimidating do to being older and taller than the rest of us. He was the first pitcher that I could hear the baseball hissing once he released it from the pitchers mound. It scared us. He got me through that fear and to become a better ball player. We played baseball together all the way through high school. Once we both had graduated from Tremper, we played many years against each other in softball and in tournaments. As the years went by we played on many teams together. He was always a fierce competitor but off the field was a friend to all. I will miss the times and talks we've had. I was shocked when he told me of his diagnosis back in February. We continued to talk from that point on. We were hoping to last longer and I was to come back from Florida and buy him a couple drinks to celebrate him either stabilizing or getting better. Steve(Blade), thank you for everything you have done and taught me. Amy, my heart goes out to you. He was a good person. You are now in a better place. You will never be forgotten. RIP my friend. You truly will be missed but never forgotten.

Our Deepest Condolences go out to Amy and the whole family. Steve (Blade) was truly a all around Great Man. I remember the first time meeting him and just how truly genuine he was . He made me (us ) feel like we have been long time Friends even though we just meet. It's truly amazing how some special people just have that power over you . And forsure Steve (Blade) did . Short story .. we have a rescue fur baby named Tiberius Aka Ty...and when Blade and Ty first meet yikes Ty didnt want anything to do with him ..Blade was just devastated. TY Liked everyone. We had no idea why ..But after many visits to Sheridan Lanes later in the evenings when Dana would go to pick up Myles aka Mason at Sheridan lanes (when Mason was done working ) Dana would take Ty along ...Ty loves to go to the Lanes anyways Ty finally with much love went up to Blade and a Friendship was forever made .. that made Blade smile ear to ear it was Priceless. So many people loved Blade he was a again all around super star super hero I could go on and on ...I know we didn't know him as long as many others did . But in the few years we did get the honor to meet him and become Friends / family ...that was all we needed because that will last us a Life Time .. Our Deepest Sympathy again to his beloved Wife Amy and his family . Love The Casey Family

Steve (blade), has been a teammate of mine for two years back in my earlier years. He had won the big one in Kenosha and I was thirsty for knowledge and the know how. He had always given me the time, effort, and consideration to talk ball. Over the years I had really started to see more than the game from Steve. I see how he treated others, always laughing and smiling, and how he was so greatly received by the people around us. That’s when I learned, you don’t have to the most gifted athlete out there to be liked. You have to be more like Blade.... that meant more than any play, game, or tourney you could’ve won. He was the Softball’s Mayor, and the people’s champion. I don’t think there is a person in the state, county or city that has given more to the game more importantly to the people than him. I had many of texts after a great weekend in the conference where he had taken the time to tell me he watched a game, or say the stat line on what I was doing. It just goes to show, he cared about all people who became his friend. My heart cries for Amy, as a person of this magnitude can not be easily removed. He is more than a husband, friend, teammate.... he was Blade. The Legend Thoughts and prayers to everyone who had the blessing of getting 10 mins of his time. Keith Anderson
