Steve enjoyed working on cars and as a mechanic for many years working and retiring from GM/ Rolls Royce from October 1977 to June 2006.
He was well known for his talent as a bowler and had bowled many a high game and series including several perfect 300 games.
He has always had the need for speed and showed this in his love for fast cars including taking his custom Hot Rod to car shows and making new friends.
His biggest passion was for fishing. He has enjoyed this activity since he was a young boy. He was always ready to get up early and take off to spend time on the water; whether it was in the backyard or one of his favorite lakes. He could never get enough. He especially enjoyed going with many of his best buddies any chance he got.
Steve was most loved for being a fun, compassionate, kind, warm, caring, and loyal person and friend. His biggest love and accomplishment to him was his family. He was energized just being among them.
His passing had left a great void in so many peoples lives and he will be greatly missed.

We will miss and love you,
forever and day.
