Steve graduated from Delone Catholic High School in 1956 and began farming in Fairfield. He developed a passion for farming from helping his grandfather on the family farm. From an early age, he loved working with horses and won many ribbons as a teenager showing them. While farming, Steve drove bus for the Fairfield Area School District for 50 years. For many of those years, he was an independent contractor. During that time, he also drove bus for Mountain Manor Rehabilitation Center. Driving bus was not just a job, for Steve it was a way to connect with the community. He loved driving the kids to and from school, to their sporting events, and on field trips. He also served as a Hamiltonban Township Supervisor for many years and most recently was a member of the Planning Commission. Steve was a member of Gideons International and a longtime member of Iron Springs Brethren in Christ Church. He participated in many activities including leading worship and teaching Sunday School. Steve loved his five grandsons. He enjoyed having fun with them and attending all their various activities.
