Steve enjoyed a life full of heart and passion, facing each challenge with profound strength and perseverance. He was passionately dedicated to his Brotherhood with Local Union 353. He participated on several negotiation committees and was an elected officer to serve the local and it's membership as an executive board member, Financial Secretary and  Office Manager. Holding his positions through several elections with great understanding of the memberships needs. He had a compassionate ear to listen, and a passionate will to take action on the membership's behalf.
