    Sincere sympathies from the family of Steve’s brother, George Hetzler (Sarasota, FL). Steve and Eileen lived across the street from us on East Lake Road in Livonia for several years “way back when” Rosamond Kuhn Hetzler resided next door.

    Eileen, I was so sorry to hear about Stephens passing. I greatly enjoyed his stories both when I served you at Carriage House and later as I showed you houses. Always remember him with a smile.
