He loved to work with his honey bees, was an avid gardener, and loved collecting junk trucks, horse trading, old tractors and anything outdoors. His true passion was helping people. Doors were opened to do this more when he became a board member for Family Helping Families.

Steven loved to give to anyone he felt was in need or that he saw needed help. He has distributed food boxes, diapers, heaters, sheets and many other items. To some he may have seemed gruff, but he had a very soft heart under his rough exterior. He had a great love for his fellow man.
