Steve was a great leader and chairman of the board at Pearl S Buck International. I learned from him and admired him. He left this earth a better place. My heart goes out to Maureen and the beautiful family he left behind. May he rest in peace.

I had the great opportunity to get to know Steve and Maureen during my early years as a new USNA-Navy wife. Both taught me the great value of humor when raising Navy juniors. Maureen, I will never look at the top of a refrigerator for dusting without breaking into a smile with a wonderful memory of Steve, which I will always treasure. You are in our thoughts. “Uncle-Jimmy Jane”, and Navy Juniors Erin and Megan.

Steve was a classmate, shipmate, roommate and dear friend. As happens too often with Navy families, we lost contact over the years, but great memories persist - and will continue. My heart goes out to Maureen and other members of the family at this sad time.

I have wonderful and many memories of Steve. Steve was my room mate during our plebe year at the Naval Academy. He helped me greatly in many ways during my 24-year Navy career. Steve was a leader in every sense of the word. I am so proud of Steve and his achievements. I grieve his passing. .

Steve was an amazing man, all who worked with him liked him -- a rare trait. He will be missed by all who knew him, a true gentleman. He was my mentor and good friend, I try always to live the "motto" that Steve lived by -- always do the right thing.
Dr T left a message on January 21, 2024:
He was one of the two most influential men in my life. There will be many moments in the future when his life will inspire me to be a better person. Hopefully, I will live up to those moments.
CAPT Keith Larson, USN (ret) left a message on January 20, 2024:
So sorry for your loss. Steve was a superb Naval Officer who thrived in his sea going assignments. We served together on the CCDG 12 staff where he was flag secretary. He will be sorely missed.
CAPT Mel Kaahanui USN (RET) left a message on January 20, 2024:
As a former ship CO under his command, I can readily attest to his outstanding leadership and guidance while in Pearl Harbor. He always made certain that the ships and crewmembers on the waterfront were first and foremost on his list of priorities. He was the consummate leader, dedicated shipmate and compassionate friend. He is and will ever be missed.

Cynthia and I feel extremely lucky to have known Steve. What a terrific man with an honorable service to our country. I am also thankful for the time he spent with our oldest child, Christopher. They had several lunches together and I know that Chris is a better man for it. With our condolences to Maureen, Betsy, Rob, and John. Love, Cynthia and Doug
Bill Evans left a message on January 19, 2024:
It was my privilege to serve under Commander Chadwick as a young navigational petty officer and plank, owner on USS Peterson, DD 969. He was as gracious as he was competent. During a phone conversation. Decades later, he could still recount a humorous episode from our first deployment, He inspired all of us with pride and confidence with his manly bearing. He is among the finest men I ever met. It would not be an overstatement to say that we loved him.
