Tribute to Steve



Stephen Kyle Owesney

April 8, 1963 - August 17, 1998

This was my high-school buddy, Steve Owesney.  I found out about his death while I was looking through our McLean High School Alumni list.  Needless to say, I was shocked!  My best friend Marykay, Steve, and I were all great pals.  We hung around together.  As a matter of fact, Marykay and her husband Matt started dating when they hooked up at a party Steve threw for my 16th birthday (wow, what a party!).  Steve and I went to our Senior Prom together, so some of these photos below are from Prom Night, 1981.  We had a small party at Steve's house before we all went out to dinner and Steve's brother Tom also went to our prom because he was dating a class-mate of ours at the time named Stephanie Armendaris.

So, here is my little tribute to a very good friend, I did love him, and he will be greatly missed!

All dressed up for Halloween in 1983.  Steve and I went to a costume party.
Here we are in our class photo in the bleachers at the football field.  The actual photo is very wide and I couldn't fit it on my scanner - so I cropped the photo.

I'll always remember:

  • Your 1967 Gold Camero with black interior (WOW!)

  • Mr. Owl and barefoot'n

  • The secrets you told me and I told you

  • Our big secret...

  • JazzBo McMann and my 16th birthday party

  • Sour cream and Doritos... forever... !!!

  • Many, many drives to the quarry and cliff jumping!

  • Fun times at Great Falls Park

  • Sneaking me out my bedroom window

  • And, so much more...

Good night and sleep tight my friend!
I'll see you when I get there...

Hey, say "Hi" to my Dad for me, OK?
