"Steve was technologically adept; he had the most intimate understanding of how things worked of anyone I had ever met. For one of our grant writeups he had given us a tag phrase for his bio that said:
'Steve is a short order chef for high technology, forged in the fires of his former career in advanced composites research, development, and commercialization...'
And that's exactly who Steve was. He was high technology. He was forged in the fire of his former career. And he was incredible."
Angela Meraki / Co-Founder / The WorcShop
A leading expert in advanced composites research, development and commercialization, who contriubted to well over a dozen patents in the metallurgical, composites and process fields. Over a number of decades, Steve intentiionally accumulated a vast assortment of equipment and components ranging from electronic, pneumatic and hydraulic components, to advanced fabrication and testing equipment to be used to create an innovative shop. As a former member of Somerville, Massachusetts' Artisan's Asylum, Steve had the opportunity to take on the large makerspace experience first hand, leveraging it first from the client-side, as he gleaned operational insights and gained first-hand knowledge and wisdom from their management team.
As a comprade, an innovator, a Maker and as a beloved friend: Steve Cornie, you will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
