I worked with Steve for many years both in the Charlotte DMV Enforcement District and the Newton District. He was always a dedicated employee and a lot of fun to be around. He enjoyed talking about his family and bird hunting and fishing. He will be missed by all. Rest in peace my brother!
I served in the Army with Buford. We became fast friends and he was a great guy. One of the better people I’ve met in an my life.
