During Steven's younger days, he ministered to shut-ins and played in the handbell choir at St. John's United Methodist Church. Steven was an accomplished competitive swimmer. He won state and regional competition and eventually became a nationally ranked swimmer in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) in long distance free style and long distance individual medley.

I knew Steve in junior high and high school in Santa Fe, when we were friends. I remember his kindness and his generosity, and his sense of humor. He was the sort who would always lend you a hand, and he helped me through some tough times.

What a shock to hear of Steven’s passing..... I have such wonderful memories of the whole Kidman family growing up, especially in the swimming circles where we shared countless hours at the Salvador Perez pool. Thank you Steven for those memories and your infectious drive for excellence.

Zteven was very special to me. I was privileged to be the handbell choir director when he was a ringer. My memories of him are of a talented musician, fun rehearsals and great trips. Oh, yess and the tricks the group would play on me. One stands out especially. They toilet papered my front yard one night. I saw them from a window, but never said anything. At the end of the year when I presented them with their certificates, there was a piece of toilet paper in them with "For service above and beyond the call of duty. " in them. They were sitting in the front pews and couldnt laugh. Rest in peace, dear friend.
