Steve was my boyfriend while we attended the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, together. We overlapped from 1977 to 1980 there. We raised two beautiful Golden retrievers, Rocky and Sounder, together, and had many wonderful times, including up at Indian River, at his cottage, going out on Mullet Lake on his Hobie catamaran, as well as his powerboat. Steve was brilliant, very wryly funny, deeply intellectual...always kind, always generous. He loved his steaks, his cocktail hour, and his music. Barb, you have my deepest sympathy, dear. Sending my prayers of solace and comfort to you and the rest of the family. God bless. Much love, Deb Rowley.

Like many other members of the economics department, I was lucky to have an excellent mentor, colleague and friend in Steve Casler. He gave excellent advice, and although at first, he could seem a little gruff, once you got to know him better it became clearer that he was one of the kindest, most generous friends a person could have. Steve was an expert in input-output analysis and other areas of economics as his extensive publication record shows. He spent many hours with insightful and helpful suggestions on economics papers I had written. A highly successful teacher, he was also very generous with time he spent with his students and was the first in the economics department to win the Julian Ross Prize for teaching excellence at Allegheny. Even after retirement in 2014, Steve continued to offer helpful advice and his friendship and for this I will always be grateful.

Steve was a good neighbor on Lynn Drive. I enjoyed talking to him and went on several kayak trips around mullet lake. He will be missed.
