Steve was a social, active man who was deeply involved in helping those who needed a sponsor, a meal, a place to sleep, or whatever he could give them. He was devoted to his sobriety using the Twelve Steps and the help of others, for the majority of his life. He enjoyed his time cooking and creating new dishes, working out at the gym, driving his vehicle and listening to music, movies, being with his friends, a good laugh, watching his Philadelphia Eagles, and being with friends and family in NJ at holidays and watching his Eagles with his Uncle Joe, his dad and many friends and family. He loved to kid his mom, text with her during Eagles games and go on shopping sprees with her to Walmart. He loved being on the beach at sunrise, bear hugs and helping others. His family and friends will always remember him as a kind and generous gentle man with a quick smile.
