Steve Inness died on the morning of Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at the age of 55. In the words of Joe Krovoza, former mayor of Davis:
Brilliant, insightful, kind. Interested and interesting. I loved him, and this town still more because of him. He will be missed by me forever. RIP, Steve. Take good care and know you touched so many. Davis couldn't ask for a more conscientions and generous citizen. The bike community won't be the same without you, nor campus lectures, nor council meetings needing perspective and progressive thought, nor the HS robotics team. Your rest has been earned.
