We lose a great fighter against GMOs in the fields and regions of Europe. Steve was among the first to join this campaign in the 1990ies and continued to participate. We did not know what this was about, when he cancelled his participation in the 8th GMO Free Regions Conference (and he had not missed a single one before!). Now we realize with sadness and gratitude.

And we lose a very fine partner in so many respects and discussions!

I will always remember Steve's smile at an early butterfly during a hike in the Swiss mountains around Lucerne. Oh boy! Thanks and take care, man!
