To the Stekiel family, I extend my deepest condolences for the loss of this very special man who was not only my friend but my esteemed colleague for almost four decades. His passing leaves a void that will be difficult to fill. Throughout the years, I had the privilege of witnessing his remarkable qualities firsthand. I held immense professional and personal respect for him, appreciating his unwavering dedication and the exceptional wisdom he possessed. His warmth and sense of humor were infectious, brightening even the most challenging days. He had the innate ability to make those around him feel valued and uplifted. His commitment to his family, colleagues, and students was truly exceptional. He went above and beyond to offer his guidance, support, and encouragement, making a profound impact on the lives of many. His kindness and loyalty were unmatched, and his unwavering dedication to his work was an inspiration to us all. While his absence will be deeply felt at MCW, his legacy will endure through the countless lives of students and faculty he touched throughout his lifetime. The memories we shared and the lessons he imparted will continue to guide and inspire us. May the love and strength of those around you provide solace during this difficult time.
