Stephen enjoyed many hours playing Catholic Youth Organization (CY0) basketball as center with many friends. In 1984, he married Sandy Iacuone and built a home in Morris, CT. Their son Nick was born in 1986. In 1991 Steve and his family moved to Santa Rosa. Steve began his career in non-profit work. After a divorce, Steve married the love of his life, the late Kristina McLaughlin.
Steve especially enjoyed his work with Pros and Cons For Kids, an organization started by Eason Ramson, a former NFL professional football player. Pros and Cons For Kids' primary goal is to offer intervention, preventative education for youth and their families, support for healthy decision making and to provide positive alternatives to negative peer pressure and violence prevention.
