Steve Crosno Memorial Fund

My apologies for not posting any information sooner … but as you can imagine the news of Steve Crosno’s death left most of us in a state of shock and numbness. By now most of you have seen the outpouring of eloquent comments that are being posted hourly at, and a beautiful tribute graphic page can also be seen at

Let me begin by saying that I have been deluged with phone calls and email from friends, acquaintances, and strangers from all over the world and the country inquiring about funeral services for Steve. At his own request, Steve will be cremated.

I am proud to say Steve was one of my oldest and most cherished friends. For this reason, the Crosno family has chosen me to organize and pay proper spiritual tribute to an individual who was so important to the heritage of our community.

I say ‘thank you’ to those who have offered heartfelt condolences and offers to help in any way. However for now, at the request of the Crosno family, the plans are for a simple, dignified and elegant spiritual service.

I said “simple,” but how could anyone ever be prepared to organize a simple event to pay homage to a giant such as Steve Crosno? I must first secure the suitable facility for the thousands of mourners that will surely want to attend. That issue is already being addressed. I can only speculate that Steve Crosno’s spiritual service will be announced in the next 5 to 10 days. All media will be notified.

In the meantime, for those of you who couldn’t help Steve in the final years of his life, your contributions will be appreciated to help defray the costs of the myriad of expenses left behind. As many of you know Steve was challenged not only medically but financially. Your money will also help cover the costs of cataloging, archiving, & storing his treasure of personal possessions. Any remaining funds may be utilized for the formation of a future Steve Crosno Foundation at a future date.

Thank you for the immediate internet response that has brought so much comfort to the Crosno family at this difficult time.

Again, the public memorial is pending, so we ask Steve’s friends in El Paso/Las Cruces, the U.S. and all over the world to be patient while we prepare a suitable tribute.
