    I met Steve in 1977, our early days in IBM training. By happenstance our wives met at a later IBM event and we all hit it off. Our boys and their girls were close in age, and our families spent many a crazy vacation together. We will miss Steve’s wry sense of humor, fatherly instincts and kindness to all. No one I know could deliver a devastatingly funny line in such a deliberate, careful and measured tone. Our whole family will miss him dearly.

  8. Bob and I have known your parents since 1987. We believe people who make you laugh are the holiest people of all. Steve was a very holy man with his wonderful sense of humor and his amazing love for his family. We know they are together once again. We love the Gaumond family very much!

  9. I feel as though I’ve known Steve my entire life as I don’t remember a time the Gaumond’s weren’t in my life. I’ve grown up knowing Steve as this calm, supportive, quiet, witty, loving and gentle soul; always ready with a kind or encouraging word, sealed with a kiss on the cheek and a warm hug. His love for Carol, Gwen, Gail and his grandchildren was unwavering. Steve was one of the good ones and he, along with Carol, are missed greatly. I’m thankful for all of the treasured memories and moments the Gaumond family has given me. I cherish them immensely. Love & Blessings ~ Kristin (Farrell) Grayner

  10. As mentioned by nearly everyone, Steve was a multi-faceted person. He was probably the funniest person I’ve ever known as well as one of the smartest. But I think his greatest attributes were his genuineness and kindness. I was fortunate enough to have known Steve for over 35 years. During those years he was a friend, mentor, coworker, and a boss. But he was never bossy nor harsh. I owe a lot of the success in my professional life to Steve’s guidance, encouragement and belief in me. I saw him nurture and guide many others during our long relationship. He will be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences to Gail, Gwen and the rest of the family.
