After graduating from Akron High School, Steven joined the United States Army, something that Steven was always proud of. He was also a member of the American Legion.

To support his family, Steven worked at Zimmer as a tool and die maker for twenty-six years, retiring in 2014. When he had the chance to relax, Steven enjoyed woodworking, fishing, watching John Wayne movies and other Westerns, reenacting old wars and the old way of life. He especially loved Camaros and other cars. Steven was described as the finest man anyone had ever known and his family’s rock. Steven was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He was continuously putting others before the needs of himself, and he loved supporting his children and grandchildren. For the past sixteen years, Steven fought cancer, and he never let it beat him.
