Mr. Caverly was also a student to be remembered. He was conscientious, courteous and kind and open-minded. He was also conciliatory when disagreements arose in class discussion. He is remembered as a student as much for his kindness as for his hard work.

Steve was my first supervisor at Charleston Correctional Facility. He was an interesting person to work with.Their were times I was surprised by his humor when I messed up something.I am glad he found humor the time I accidently keyed the mike on the radio at an inopportune time. I will never forget his philosophy on some things. Steve was a complex person. He will be remembered because of his complexity.

There is a sound indelibly imprinted in my soul, that sound, is Steve's laughter ... You could be in another part of the house or outside for that matter ... but trailing across anyone within ear shot would be his ever present laughter. It may have rolled on longer than your average laugh, but it gave you time to enjoy it and smile WITH him. I will miss that sound most.

Uncle Steve will be dearly missed. I hadn't seen him much in recent years, but whenever I did he had a greeting of "Hello Cathleen!" for me - a joke going back to my childhood when he called me "Cathleen" to tease me, I would repeatedly tell him "My name is Cathy not Leen". I will miss hearing his voice calling me "Cathleen".
Love to Aunt Arlene, Missy and family.
