Extending heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the family of Steve Aikman on the loss of your husband, father and son. Please forgive me, I was unable to attend his services due to influenza.
Some day, somehow, Sherri, after you have healed from your injuries, I would be thrilled to welcome you back to your yoga classes at Super Nova Fitness. Sending hugs and love and keeping you in my prayers. Namaste.
I worked with Steve for 10 years when he was the Chaplain at the Adams County Jail in Brighton. We continued to stay connected even after his move to Pueblo. Our conversations on the phone and our common ministry kept us together. He always made time to talk and I often needed to “vent.” I still work with offenders as we both did for the past 25 years. They say most men can count the number of real friends they have in life on one hand. Steve was a real friend to me. He served his country and his God. I’m confident he’s heard those words, “Well done good and faithful servant.” I’ll miss him a lot.
I worked with Steve in the Chapel and one of his office mates. He was such a pleasure to work with and I will miss him and his good mornings. Prayers to your family. He will be thought of each and every day here at the Chapel of Hope.
Steve will be truly missed, he was such a caring person. He made the Chapel of Hope a warm and welcoming place for all.
Prayers for the blessing of comfort to the Aikman family during this sad time.
He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed. He’s home with the Lord but our hearts are heavy. You’re family is in our thoughts & prayers.
I work with Steve at CMHIP he was a caring person. He connected with our patients when others couldn’t. You will be miss Steve my many
My sincere condolences for your loss. May there be comfort in knowing the many lives Steve touched. Steve was a wonderful man full of love for our Lord, he provided meaningful Christian support and counseling to those in need. I spoke with Steve many times before I retired from CMHIP in 2009. He was a superb example of a person sharing God’s word and serving Him through outreach and example. The Chapel of Hope was a befitting place for him, because he provided hope to seekers and non-seekers alike. May he rest in peace.
Steve had one simple characteristic that made him beloved at CMHIP. That was that he was such a genuine caring person. He took the time to talk to everyone and make sure they were okay. As a fellow vet we had a few good discussions about our service. Rest In Peace Marine.
Steve was a very kind man always had a smile and a hello. I worked at CMHIP and that where I know him from. I am so very sorry for your loss. He was very well liked at CMHIP and did amazing work there.
God Bless Steve and his family.
Steve was my friend. He was one of the best men I knew. He was the kind of man that’d say “How’re you doin’ today” and mean it. He embraced the one mandate that could change everything…..Ones devotion to God is demonstrated, illustrated, and authenticated by ones love for others. He was proud of his son and he loved his wife and the rest of his family. I will miss his smile, his cheerfulness, and his camaraderie. The value of a life is always determined by how much of it was given away. Steve was a giver. God love him and God bless him. And God love and bless his family.
