Steve spent his childhood in Hoopeston, Illinois where he enjoyed pheasant hunting and high school football. He volunteered for the Vietnam War where he served bravely. He moved his family to Florida in 1982 to be closer to his mother. Steve spent the majority of his career as an investigator for the Department of Defense and he loved his job. After retirement, he enjoyed playing golf, fishing and traveling. He enjoyed the culture of the old Wild West, which led him to pursue horse riding. He loved animals and he loved his dogs. He was wholly devoted to his children and family and this devotion was the hallmark of his life.
