Over the years, Steve enjoyed watching sports, especially the Houston Astros. He shared his love of music with Scott, as they played for years in a bluegrass band; Steve on the guitar, and Scott on the banjo. His siblings and their children will always cherish the memories of those fun family vacations together and the music around the campfire. Another love Steve had was cooking.
