  14. Steve, you have no idea how much I valued you as an official, as a person as well as a friend.

You will be missed tremendously by people you had no idea you influenced. Rest easy buddy.

  15. Steve thank s for the memories we had as refers and good times will miss you ,Savannah basketball and football.

  16. “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    Steve, although we only worked together a few times, I will never forget how knowledgeable and personable you were as an official and of course it was merely a fraction of the great man you were.
    I truly am grateful to have known you and to have been inspired by you.
    The GFL, MCOA, and GHSA have lost a great man of character.

    To the Camp Family,
    You are in my prayers. The loss of a loved one is never easy. However, please be comforted in knowing Christ said he goes to prepare a place in Our Father’s House… Our Lord and Savior tailored made a special place for Steve and he called him personally to enjoy it. The toils of this mean ole world are over for God’s faithful servant and now Steve can rest knowing his job is well done.
    Steve’s legacy is strong and I pray the good Lord dries every tear.

    May God bless Steve Camp’s Family & Friends

    And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
