So sorry to hear this news, like Bill Dreher, Steve was always so kind and positive and a friend to all at Town & Country. Over the past 20 years I have known Steve I cannot recall anything but kind words and a willingness to help in any way he was able.
He will be fondly remembered by all who came to know him as a friend and neighbor.
Nanette and I will hold Devon and all the Kosloski family in our prayers and thoughts at this difficult time.

Words can’t really express the hole Stevie’s passing will leave in the lives of so many. We cherished the time we had with him and the whole family. Stevie got his wings Sunday, and I hope the beer is cold in heaven.

I just heard of Steve‘s passing, it makes me so sad, because we had such wonderful times throughout the years, it’s ironic though ,that the thing I thought of was, as young kids, how we would sit on the front steps at Chris’s market waiting for the ice cream delivery guy, Steve, who would always have treats for us. I’m so sorry to see another loved one leave us here. God bless you, Devon and Family.

My heart is with Aunt Devon, Deena, and the girls at this difficult time.
Knowing my Cousin Stevie was an honor and a privilege. His lighthearted jokes and good nature will not soon be forgotten by myself and so many others whose lives he touched. I will always treasure our time together and the wonderful memories I hold dear to my heart.
I hope the mic is hot in heaven, because Stevie is ready to bring the house down with the best “Midnight Special” God’s ever seen!

So sorry for your loss Devon, Deena, Dirk and family. What an awesome man, my Coca-Cola vending machine partner. We always had each others back. Sick days, vacations and days off. Of course he got like 5-6 weeks vacations and I got 1. But we would bust it out the week before and the week after to get it done. Probably why you gave me the famous Coke sucker award. Thanks for so many great memories. love ya. Rest in heaven my friend, until we meet again.

My prayers are with the Kosloski family during this difficult time. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Mr. Kosloski was my neighbor and had a great personality. Although the days ahead may be hard, remember where your strength comes from.

God Bless you all,

Dad Kos, You were the best example of a loving father and taught me more lessons than you know. The first and foremost is have a great sense of humor and love your family with all you have. I was blessed to have you and Mom Kos as part of my life and my family’s life. I will never, ever forget you!

Stevie aka Stevie Guitar, first time I met you was when you were a DJ for a snowbird party in Florida. We were learning how to play guitar together hence the name Stevie Guitar. You were my inspiration in playing music for others who might enjoy. I cherish the time spent together playing music side by side. Thank you for your guidance, kindness, friendship and love. I can hear the music you’re playing for heaven to enjoy.
