Steven was born in California in 1975. He followed in his father’s footsteps and worked as a carpenter; he loved the art of building.  

Steven was passionate about life and lived it to the fullest. He was a thrill seeker and the life of every party. He enjoyed riding his Harley and spending time with his friends and family. His smile was contagious and he lit up a room.  He was a strong, kind, compassionate man and loyal to all. He would give the shirt off his back, and he always kept it real.
