wow.. this is the first I heard about it. Steve was a nice, sweet unassuming guy. We were on the basketball team together and played handball. In my year book he wrote "To a guy I've known all my life, your friend...". wow, a shocker, but I am proud the way he died. Paul Miller

Sorry but You misspelled Stephen's Name! Stephen was a wonderful & great Person while attending Francis Lewis. Played on "Our Crappy" Basketball Team,lol.
Stephen was a good FRIEND to Me in HS & A True Brother FDNY Firefighter. Stevie told Me I was in part responsible for His becoming an FDNY Firefighter. The fact that Charley Fisher could become a Firefighter(as Stevie said "Do It!") He could Become a Firefighter too!
Stephen is Today "One" of "My 343 FDNY Hero Angels" from the viscious & unwarranted Attacks On The "Twin Towers" on 9-11-2001.
Stephen, along with Gregory Foster,has made "The Ultimate Heroic Sacrifice" so All Of Us can Be Safe.
G-D Bless My Brother & True Friend,

I am sorry that it took so long for me to make an entry on this page.  Steve was my friend throughout high school. As competitive athletes, we had a healthy respect for each other. However, even though he sometimes displayed a tough exterior, above all, he was a kind hearted and good natured friend. It is so very tragic that Steve died during 9/11. He was a heroic firefighter who chose his profession so that he could save others. I know that he will be appropriately rewarded in heaven!

Steve was in my 6th grade class at P.S. 26 (Mrs. Levy, 1962).  Big, burly and red-headed, and a very nice, well-liked guy.  I listened for his name during the 10th Anniversary readings of those fallen on September 11th this year.   "Stephen Eliot Belson . . . "  It brought back a sense of gratitude to Steve and his colleagues for all they did to save lives, at the cost of their own, on that fateful day.   Rest in peace, Steve.
