He met his wife Shirley (predeceased) in Caledonia and upon retirement they relocated to Washago to live on the Green River. He was an active member of the Heritage United Church until its closure and sang in the choir as well. Steve volunteered his time to his friends, running errands and just generally helping them in their time of need. He loved animals; enjoying time with his cats and dogs. He and his dog Dalton were part of a therapeutic program providing comfort through visits to local retirement homes and when it was time; Dalton moved into a retirement home with Steve.
