Happy Father’s Day to All Dad’s and Their Sons and Daughters the World Round

Happy Father’s Day-Dad’s.

Just wanted to acknowledge how fortunate we fathers are to be blessed with children.

Best presents EVER. 

Yes, I loved my 1964 Comet Caliente Convertible. And my cool home on its own “island” in Eagle Rock, in Northeast LA. I loved my first real microscope and my leather-bound Franklin book collection of “The Hundred Greatest Classics.”

But, no present has ever come close to that of becoming a father and being blessed with two beautiful sons.

Both have now grown to manhood and are strong, healthy, positive forces for Good in the world.

On this Father’s Day 2019 I say thank you, boys. Thank you both for BEING.

Much Love,


Michael                                Matthew

    Happy Father’s Day, Steve! Your sons are very handsome and you seem very proud of them. Are you a grandfather? Did your sons know George? What did they think of him? Also do they support the idea of him being a serial killer? I can’t wait until you new book comes about about GHH’s early years. It should be very enlightening especially during the time he wrote about crime and witnessed the crime scenes, which I think had a huge impact on his psyche. When will it be out?

      Karen O: Thanks, yes very proud of my two sons. I am a grandfather. My son, Michael has two small children. A young boy and a girl. Both boys only met their grandfather on a few occasions as he “passed through town” so never really got to know him. I think they both agree with my investigation now that so much has been added over the years. Not sure when “The Early Years” will be finished. Lot to work on yet. My next priority is making what we have into a Documentary, so the writing of the next book is “on hold” for now. Best, Steve.
