Remembering Steve Block, a Legend in Print Sales
Lori’s husband Rick Michaud is also in the graphic arts industry, having started his own firm, the Graphic Group, 15 years ago. They have three children: Olivia, Owen and Julia. Steve is also survived by his brother Richard and his sister-in-law Gloria, as well as their children Nicole and Garret.
Other personal traits that Steve was known for include his love of a bargain and his fondness for nice clothing. He may well have been the top customer of Marshall’s, Filene’s Basement and TJ Maxx.
Steve cared about his health greatly, taking care to eat right and shop at places like Whole Foods. He and Shirley loved to dine out and also to travel. They were a happy couple indeed.
To know Steve Block was to know he loved cats, especially one in particular. LA (“Little Angel”) was by Steve’s side for 15 years. It is because of this love for cats that Steve’s family has asked that donations in his name be made to the MSPCA Angell Animal Medical Center, 350 South Huntington Ave., Boston, MA 02130 or at www.mspca.org under honor and memorial giving.
One more characteristic that defined Steve was his love of laughter. That might help ease the sadness and grief of his family and friends over his loss. To think about Steve Block and how he enriched their lives is a good reason to smile, today and every day.
