The Evansville LST crew mourns the passing of Sam Steele. Sam worked at Marina Pointe and was a tremendous help to the LST for several months after the ship arrived in October of 2005.

Until he became ill last spring, Sam was always around ready to pitch in and help wherever and whenever the LST needed it.

Sam let Fred Kerstein and me paint the bow of the LST (as much as we could reach) from his boat and never complained when we spilled Haze Gray on the Marina Pointe boat's new paint job. Sam got a laugh when I almost fell out of the boat.

This was just one of numerous chores Sam helped us with.

Sam was an Army veteran.
