He attended Ball State University and IUSB. While living in Colorado, he enjoyed biking, snowboarding, and cookouts with his friends.

Steve spent his last years living in Washington, DC, where he was employed by PEPCO as an analyst. His family and friends will remember his thoughtfulness and good-hearted approach to others. We will miss his sense of humor, his smile, his devotion to anything ND, and watching television while enjoying a fire in the fireplace. But most of all, we will miss his hugs and his love for us. He has left us much too soon. Visitation will be from 4-8 PM, with a vigil service starting at 4 on Thursday, July 18th, at the McGann Hay, University Chapel, 2313 E. Edison Road.
