    Farewell to my tennis buddy, I will miss you out there on at the court of love.

    I thank God for the priviledge of knowing Steed and having him among my GT fraternity brothers. I want to bless Steed and his family as we release him now to his heavenly home where he is “welcomed by his spiritual family for a life well-lived my true and faithful servant” And so it is and so we say AMEN.

  3. Dear Tyson Family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this most difficult time. We will miss Uncle Steed terribly. I am so thankful for all of the memories and cherish the times we were all together as a family. Bill and I were truely grateful for the kindness and hospitality that Uncle Steed and his family showed us on our many trips to California. We wish everyone strength and peacefulness during this time. Love to all,
    Mandy Edrington

    Let me share with you what Steed means to me. We all grew up in or around Rome, Georgia and our families were mainly employed in the textile mills. We were not dirt poor but we did not have much, either, and for most of us the prospects were not especially bright. When he was in high school, Steed contracted polio, but I remember seeing him playing high school baseball, wearing a steel brace. I must have been only 7 or 8 years old at the time but his courage and perseverance were pointed out to me by our Uncle Wallace, who took me to the game. His courage in overcoming polio served as a life lesson for me, to never give up, a lesson that has helped me immensely along the way. He was, I believe, the first in our immediate family to attend college, setting another example of what it takes to make a better life, an example at least 3 of his younger cousins followed to professional degrees. We were, of course, very proud of his being a part of the burgeoning space industry in Huntsville. I knew I could not equal his accomplishments but he was an inspiration to do the best I could do.

    Those memories do not pass away.

    Words are inadequate to describe the kind of Man and Father that was Steed. He had it figured out. He had his priorities straight. In recent years we developed an amazing friendship. I will miss his fatherly advice. But more than anything I will miss sorely hanging out with my Dad. Chuck
