He graduated from Kearns High School in 1979 and retired from the U.S. Postal Service after many years as a mail-processing clerk. Steve was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and was very diligent in his beliefs of the power of prayer. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. 

Steve was passionate of his love for rock music and was an avid sports fan. Eddie Van Halen and Neil Peart, drummer of Rush were his heroes and even had the honor of meeting Eddie. He loved going to concerts and watching his favorite football team, the Las Vegas Raiders.
