With profound sadness we report that Steve Yocum, our friend and former colleague, passed away on Tuesday, September 5th. After a tragic accident in March of this year, Steve fought hard to overcome a severe neck injury which left him paralyzed andunable to leave the hospital, but unfortunately the complications resulting from his injury proved too difficult to overcome. Steve was leading a full and vibrant life, and there are simply no words to describe the tragedy of his premature death. He will be missed by all of us here at ABC and by so many others whose lives he warmed with his good will, great musical talent and generous spirit. In fond memory, we bid him farewell.
