He would do anything for anyone and was always there to lend a helping hand, whether it be cleaning sidewalks, mowing lawns, or anything else he could help out with. He was a jokester and loved to give people a hard time, always putting a smile on your face. Steve had many joys in life. He loved woodworking, smoking meats, and especially had a big spot in his heart for his lap dog, Shay.
