Steve worked for Constructors as a Project Superintendent in Lincoln, Nebraska. He loved construction where he held many certificates and merits. He truly enjoyed going to work for the company. His passions were western movies, Husker football, motorcycles, his family, friends, and God. He had many hobbies including flying small planes, scuba diving, horseback riding, boating/skiing as well as martial arts in which he taught the Ventura Police Department self defense. He was a hard worker, a caring friend, and an all-around great guy. He adored his grandchildren and looked forward to the times he chatted or hung with at many gatherings and Husker events. Steve was an animal lover and hated seeing any furry creature harmed. He had two horses Cracker Jack and Buck, three dogs in heaven with him now (Dozer, Husker, and Darby), and Kami who is still running around the house looking for him. She was by his side at all times. Steve LOVED gatherings with family and friends especially if games were involved. This was his request for the celebration of his life.
