Uncle Steve was a man who would put others first before himself. When I was in the hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio Uncle Steve took off from work to drive Nani my grandmother down to come see me without hesitation. When I went to Bethesda Navy Hospital for a Doctor appointment Uncle Steve arraigned for me to have a car so that I can drive from their house and the hospital every day because Nani wanted to see her grandson. He would do things like that for his family and friends.
One of my most recent memories of spending time with Uncle Steve was that he really wanted to see the Jelly Belly jelly bean factory out here in WI. So I drove down to where they were staying at and took Aunt Shelia and Uncle Steve to go see it. As we were touring the facility I would look over at him and it was easily seen that he was really enjoying himself learning had Jelly Belly's were made. He will be missed by his friends and family.
