I would like to express my deepest condolences to the Kokinda family on the loss of Steven. I met & got to know Steve at the Laurel Mall. He & I used to hang out there every Saturday & eventually became friends. He was a great guy & a lot of fun to be around. He may be gone from this Earth physically, but he will never be forgotten. God Bless!

My deepest sympathy, thoughts, & prayers are with all Steve's family on this great loss of your beloved. I knew Steve from going out a lot of places in the past such as Dino's Pizza & Restaurant/Laurel Mall, The Comfort Inn , & parties we were invited to; and then became good friends. I will never forget Steve taking my package and calling me to say that I had left it in Dino's and he picked it up for me; so that I could have it. The package was something I really wanted to have; so I was glad that he found it for me. I will always be grateful to him. He was a great guy with a great sense of humor, always happy go lucky, so much fun to be with, and he would do anything for you. He was loved by many, and will be sadly missed. May God Bless his family at this difficult time! & May he rest in peace!
