It has been a difficult year indeed.
I remember Steve when he had a magic shop in Worcester, Massachusetts in the '70s.
R.I.P. Steve and condolences to his family.

My best thoughts are with his family right now.

I'm stunned. Steve was my childhood mentor. Growing up in Worcester, Massachusetts, in the 70's, I spent hours upon hours, day after day, in his magic shop and in his home. He taught me, and encouraged me to perform, and compete. He was a great friend, and this is just such a terrible loss.

He was scheduled to do a lecture at the Magic Castle on March 20th.

Sad news indeed.

This is sad news indeed. He was one of my favorite magicians, when I was a kid. First saw him on The Merv Griffin Show, performing his Martians routine. I later patterned my close-up sponge ball routine on his routine. He will undoubtedly be missed.

I was just watching him on a DVD a few minutes ago! He will be missed.

I purchased his sponge ball "tool kit" with sponges and DVD on the small magic shop on Mackinaw Island last summer- extremely well done. I had no idea he was even ill- just sad news- seems like so many wonderful magicians are leaving this mortal stage recently. My sincere sympathy to the family.

I have a Steve Dacri magic set, the one shot at the Magic Castle. GREAT set and Steve was one of the nicest most generous guys I have ever met in magic or out. He really will be missed. Bye, bro,
