    We have known Steve for over thirty years, ever since our kids played soccer together. We have never known a kinder, more patient and upbeat friend. We have shared many laughs, many Mexican dinners and many adventures. Rest In Peace, Steve. We will miss you so much !

    My dad...my hero...I don't even have words to express what it feels like knowing that you are gone from this world. Since the day I was born, you have been a guiding light to us all. You were my father, role model, teacher, advisor, coach, friend...best friend, and just plain DAD. The world seems a little more dim right now, so we just have to shine brighter than ever because that is what you would have wanted. You taught us so many lessons, but none more important than what it means to be a family - one that sticks together when times are hard. That is who we are, and that is how we keep going. You are the greatest man I have ever known, and I can only hope to be just like you. I love you, dad.

    Steve was my loving father-in-law and he will be dearly missed. Although he battled Parkinsons all during his post-retirement life, he never once let it get in the way of showing love and selflessness to his family. It was a privilege to ask his blessing to marry Christine, and a joy to bring into this world our two wonderful children (Steve's grandchildren). Steve embodied the Jesuit ethos of being a "man for others." May this be an ideal we all aspire to and may we think of Steve Rothlein when seeking inspiration to do good in this world. May he rest in peace. Anthony W.

    With a sad heart I write this note. I have known Steve a really long time, worked with him and for him. There was never a finer person at the dept and off duty. There is too many examples for this space. Blessings for Luann and family. Rest In Peace is not sufficient for such a wonderful person but is what he deserves and more.
