The last I knew he was in Milwaukee at the main brewery. You may want t try there at Miller brewing Company.
I have heard that he has passed I hope it's false Steve was a well like guy here in the Syracuse area.

Gerry, contacted Miller they have no record of him. Do you have any idea of Steve's family in your area I might contact. I am editing a pending autobiography by Ed Shilen and am trying to locate his collection as he has many #1 guns to photograph. Would be deeply indebted for any and all help.

That's strange about no having ny record of him. He was the head Brew Master here at Miller until they closed down.
Steve was transferred to the main brewery there. He had a nice house here in our area, I knew his sons and his wife , very very nice family. they all enjoyed shooting.
Steve had an extensive collection of many firearms Harts Shillens, Shermans etc. There must be some sort of record where he might be {if he is still alive}
I heard some distressing news that he has passed , but never really believed it.
Maybe wally Hart has a record of his last address. You could check there also. I knew he sold one Shillen DGA to the current president of Camillus, {Bill Parfitt}
His collection may still exist with his wife and sons.

Frank,
Steve was a good friend. I fondled many of those Shilens over the years he was here.
Miller must have something, he was a 5th-6th generation brewmaster for them. Do you have any contacts for Ross Sherman's family in Dryden N.Y.? He and Steve became very close in his final years, you might get a lead there.

I spoke to Bill Parfitt about Steve today.
Steve definitely was last at Miller in Milwaukee, Bill told me Steve was a vice president at miller brewing at one point.
