I only knew Steve for one semester at Utica College. He was in my Italian class and he sat right next to me. It goes to show you what a kind and friendly person he was that the one class I sat next to him and he was always so helpful and friendly. A bright young man with an amazing future ahead of him. To his family and friends I wish you the deepest sympathy. May his soul rest at ease with our lord and savior Jesus Christ.

There isn''t one word that I can use to descibe Steve, but many. He was first of all one of the most devoted father''s that I have ever met. He was a gentleman. He was kind, thoughtful, compassionate and caring. He would always greet me with a big smile and a hug. Steve was one of my closest and dearest friends and I will miss him tremendously. My sincere sympathy goes out to his family, to Krista and to his two adorable children, Grayson and Piper.

My deepest sympathy to the Aceto family and all who are grieving right now. Steve was my best friend over the last few years. Not a week went by that I didn''t see or talk to him. We''ve been together through birthdays, holidays, good times, and bad. He was always a great listener and my biggest cheerleader. He gave the best hugs in the world. I will miss him and his smile.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I worked with Stephen when we were managers at MetLife and I was also a friend in Tampa, Florida. I will truly miss him and his contagious smile. May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.
