Steve took the most pride in spending time with his family. He could often be found tinkering around in his workshop keeping himself busy. He was very particular and took much pride in his landscape. He enjoyed hunting and traveling before being diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2004. He enjoyed teaching both grandchildren to drive his beloved Tahoe as well as fishing with his grandson and working puzzles with his granddaughter. His grandchildren were his pride and joy. In recent years he could often be found in his favorite leather Lazyboy recliner drinking a Coke or enjoying ice cream while watching television. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who had the privilege and joy of knowing and loving him.
