A Fond Farewell To Steve Green

Just after I got out of the gobi here in Mongolia I got the sad news from Cleveland that one of my department's long time volunteers, and good friend, Steve Green, had passed away after a valiant fight against cancer.

Steve was one of the first persons I meet when I arrived in Cleveland 5 years ago, and he quickly became a valued member of the the VP crew. He did a great job prepping fossils, entering data, and trying to keep our old computers going. In addition to working in my Dept. he had also volunteered in Cultural Anthropology and worked part-time with security.

This is the only picture of Steve I've got on my computer but I'm sure that he'd be happy to be remembered prepping fossils.
