I donít know where to even start. Steve was a great man. I started working for him six years ago and he welcomed me with open arms. He showed me the ropes to be a employee at his business. No matter the situations that occurred he always had my back and best interest at heart. He was always interacting with customers and he had so many regulars continue coming over the years. My heart goes out to Steveís family, I will continue to pray for them. Thank you Steve for all that youíve done for me and the community with your business. Your going to be missed. The Swan is going to be a remembrance of you thatís for sure.

I recently moved from Delaware to the Tulsa area and just heard the sad news. Over the years I ate at White Swan and visited with Steve many times. He and I watched a lot of Perry Mason reruns and shared many jokes and stories. He always brightened my day and made me laugh. My heart goes out to his family and all who loved him. RIP Steve.
