Online Condolences


  1. I am absolutely heartbroken to hear of the passing of steve. I met him back in 2012 at a time when my life was spiraling out of control and from then on for over 10 years, he was an iron clad friend, confidant, and ear to listen. We had a very private friendship, but Steve was very special to me and my heart. We had a lot of laughs, and late night talks. Our sons are close in age, and I miss our talks about the crazy things our boys would do, and hearing and telling each others stories about boys and what was going on in their lives and how much they are growing. Steve had a great heart and was very caring, generous, professional and polite. One of the nicest people ive ever know. I miss him and send condolences to the family.

  2. So sorry to learn of your loss. I recall working together at the Wampanoag mall.
    Isaiah 33:24 – He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it.

  3. My deepest condolences and sympathy to the entire Medeiros family. I met Steve when we were both in sales training at Leiser Sound. Such great times. Lots of fun and lots of laughs. He went into law enforcement after that and I moved to Florida. I visited with him and did a ride-a-long for a week. He was the ultimate professional. He was always so caring of other people. He will be sorely missed. I am sorry that I just found out about this today. Steve, watch over your family and the rest of us. I miss you so much buddy.

  4. Rest in eternal piece, may you watch over and protect your son
