Steve was an avid sports fan, specifically when it came to his beloved Cubs and Hawkeyes and loved to listen to games on the radio.

At the center of Steve’s life was his children. He loved being a dad and was always there for his kids. The family especially enjoyed trips to Adventureland together, as well as fishing trips.
