In Memory: Steve Inouye

To many of our long standing customers, Steve was a friend. He viewed his clients as his friends, and treated them as such. Steve would spend hours on any problem, and drop anything to make sure a client was taken care of.

Clients still come in and ask for Steve. They remember him from the 25 years he spent behind the counter, eager to assist and happy to have a chat and catch up.

At Walco, Steve was family. To us, he was endlessly dependable and always, always there. No matter what was needed, Steve was always happy to help. He stuck by us through 25 years.

His loss is felt through our whole organization, and it is felt by our clients.

Let us remember Steve- by his smiling face, his stories, his eagerness to help, his loyalty, his limitless patience and support.

He will be dearly missed.
