Dec-20-15  Caissanist: Another obituary from Jeremy Silman: . The brilliance of this man, both inside and outside of chess, seems to have greatly impressed almost everyone he met.
Dec-22-15  Granny O Doul: It seems the Mechanics Institute club was prescient, holding a memorial tourney months ago:
Dec-22-15  Caissanist: According to Granny's link he actually attended his own memorial tournament, although he didn't play. I wonder if he enjoyed the experience.

Old friend John Fanning once played in a memorial invitational at Boston College which was drolly named after him and came out none the worse for wear.

May-13-19  Boomie: Steve hung out at the Last Exit coffee house (house of Yaz) in Seattle for a year or two. He was an astonishingly fine speed chess player and was the only one in Seattle who could give Yaz a good game. He had no pretensions and was knowledgeable and charming. He was one of those rare people that you felt honored to know.
