Steve was not just a great leader in his career, but especially for his family.  No matter what type of day he was having, Steve never missed a chance to show the meaning of kindness and love for his family every day of his life.  His presence will be missed, however his knowledge and values will always be carried on by his family and friends.  Relatives and friends received Thursday 2-4 & 6 -8 PM where Service Celebrating his Life will follow at 8 PM at the ANTHONY M.
