He loved hosting gatherings at his home, bringing family and friends together to enjoy barbecues, bonfires and football games. He was often the life of the party and had a witty sense of humor. No matter what he was doing, a good time was sure to follow!
Some of his hobbies and interests included softball, fishing, camping and coaching his son’s baseball and football teams when he was younger. He loved helping others and wouldn’t hesitate to offer assistance. He was known as the neighborhood mechanic, always willing to help with car repairs for family, friends and neighbors.. His doors and his arms were open. For this reason, he was lovingly referred to by many as “Pops”. He touched a lot of people in his lifetime and created many memories that will be forever cherished.
Steve will always be remembered for his strength and kindness; but above all, Steve will be remembered for the unwavering love he had for his family.
