Steve was a tool and die maker for many years, working at companies that included Reese Products and the Kent Company, both of Elkhart. His staunch work ethic kept him busy nearly all of the time. However, he did manage to find a bit of time to take a ride on his motorcycle and bowl with his friends in his earlier years. He also enjoyed traveling to Pennsylvania each year to deer hunt while his father was still alive. He served honorably in the United States Marine Corps in Okinawa during the early 1970’s.
