Steve was my neighbor...while I did not know him other than passing it breaks my heart to think of his passing. It was just two weeks ago I believe I saw him getting the boat ready for the fishing season. He could be often seen loading up his vehicle ready for another fishing trip. It saddens me to hear of his and his brothers passing..I do hope some peace can be found in the fact that he was doing what he loved to do. I will be sad to no longer see his smiling face getting ready to go on another trip. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of these two gentleman.

FIrst, my sincere and deep felt sympathy to the families of these men. Every good thing said about them here in these comments is true and more. Both were the type of people always first to offer help if needed to anyone. They were active in the Northeastern Jaycees some years ago when I first came to know them. Both were shining examples to others in how they conducted themselves, and with how they gave of themselves helping others. God bless both. The world has lost two of the niecest people you could ever hope to know with their passing.

Wow. They doted on their grandchildren! Get ready St. Peter--open those gates WIDE!

Do Daily Record writers get paid by the column inch? That's the only reason I can think of why stories in the Record continually contain non-important, trivial details.
God bless

RIP to theses 2 brothers. Peace be with his son-in -law knowing he did bravely all he could to save them. May his wife and children find comfort and later peace in the man she married who offered his life for her father and uncle.

You don't like how the YDR is writing, don't read it. You can't possibly dislike it as much as those of us who knew the people in the article dislike your comment. Whoever you are, if you had even a small amount of the integrity, caring nature and kindness, and just plain down good human decency these two men lived their lives with, I wouldn't be responding to your low comment. You would never had made it. Any human being with any common sense, or whose mother had raised them with the right morals wouldn't have. You have no idea who were, or what these men stood for while they lived. Being doting grandparents was just a tiny glimpse into them not just as a news story for you to read, but who and what they were. They were REAL people. Not news! They were greatly respected by those of us fortunate enough to have known them, and LOVED deeply by many friends and family! I can only wish you could know how if felt to have these things thought or felt about you in the same depth. Because of the sick attitude displayed by your comment? I know you can't possibly have experienced it in your life. You sorry excuse for human kind! God help you.

First let me say my heart goes out to the famlies of these men and may both rest in peace. Now I have no idea why someone would take this moment to grind a personal grudge or say anything as hateful as I have read in these comments? IF you are adults then you really need to start acting as such, I find it hard to believe your parents brought you up to be this way. To the family of these gentlemen God Bless You and help you through your loss.---- Just Tom

My buddies and I happened to be in that same area Friday. After some radio chatter made it clear there were men in the water we picked up lines as quickly as we could and tried to lend what assistance we could.

Turns out we just weren't close enough, the men were recovered just after we started to search.

Our condolences to the family and best wishes to the recovering men as well.

To us, there was never a question of IF we would go help, it was instinct to do so. The only question was how quickly we could do it.

I only wish there had been time and means to alert fellow fishermen of their peril, the result may have been different.

(tried to post yesterday but apparently it didn't take, hope it doesn't double-post)

Everyone's efforts no matter how great or small, are greatly appreciated by their family and friends of the survivors and deceased.
Thank you so much for your efforts and thoughts!
