  1. It is really sad news…. Steve and I spent long time at Texas A&M University. And he was very kind and helpful to me when I visited to University of Oxford. I believe that you are now very peaceful and comfort. You were outstanding mentor and friend.
    Thank you Steve and missing you!!!

  2. So shocked and saddened to see this news about Steve. He is one of the best scientists I’ve ever come across. He was great mentor to me during my stay at Texas A & M. I remember the good-bye party that he arranged for me when I left College Station.

    My deepest condolences to his family!

  4. It is with great sadness to receive this news about Steve. I knew him when he worked St Texas A&M University. We communicated via email after he moved to Oxford although not within the last year. Steve was always so very friendly and a great researcher. My thoughts and prayers with his siblings whom he spoke of often.

  6. Staggered to see the obit in the Globe&Mail. We knew Steve in our youth, visited him in Cold Spring Harbor, memories of soft shell crab on Long Island and a brilliant Steve. Our sincere condolences to family
