I am sad to say that we have lost one of our own, Steve Fuqua. I don't have any details but when we know more we will post them.

I am so sad to hear it. I like this picture that was posted here of the Troubador concert. This is the way I will remember Steve, full of vitality and the life of the party, always funny. I hope everyone especially Tom will be strengthened during this difficult time of loss.

We heard yesterday while at the TCT event in Vicksburg. The mood around the campfire was bittersweet........but we knew he was there with all of us.

This is also the picture that came to my mind first. We had a great time on that trip.

The entire trip this January to see Antsy. From meeting up with Tom and Steve and caravaning the rest of the way, to Steve driving us (in my van) to the concert that involved an unscheduled stop for Steve to relieve himself...on my van door, to the stop on the way home at Traders World and the BIG GORILLA at the door. I have never laughed so hard in my life!

I don't have one best memory of Steve. Every time I saw him, he was a hoot. When I saw him at the TCT event in Milford just a couple of weeks ago, he was the same as ever - the center of attention. Hard to believe he is gone so suddenly. Let's make sure Tom has all the support he needs in this difficult time.

Steve, You touched a lot of people. You will be missed but never forgotten. See you down the road, buddy!

My favorite memory of Steve was at the Metro-Detroit rally two years ago. Holly and I were at his site, talking to him, and he asked, out of all the guys there, which one we would sleep with. I spit up my drink which he called "Toilet Blue" so fast, it hurt. I laughed so hard, I swear I didnt breathe for a solid minute!

I know we said one memory, but I have to share one more. The first TCT I went to, i just came to visit, well, I bough one of the vintage suitcases that was being sold at the rally during the flea market. Well, I asked if I could leave it at his site while I went to go grab something out of my car. When I went to go get it, he had gone to dinner, so I took it, and it felt heavy. I opened it, and I kid you not, there was old dishes, magazines, a spoon, all kinds of stuff he tried getting me to take earlier in the day, and I refused. Well I ended up getting it in the end anyway.

Steve, your humor, your smile and your over-the-top personality will be sadly missed. I can only hope that heaven has many Airstream's for you to work on. May we see each other on the roads of gold one day.

Metro Detroit - 2008

Met Steve at our first MD rally there in Milan... he was MD President if I recall. He welcomed us and made us feel like we belonged!! I do remember the humor!!

Somewhere I have a picture of he and I with all the kids in our tie-dyes!!
