After graduating from Cedar Crest High School in 2003, Steven pursued his education at Millersville University.

One notable achievement was his successful project of installing a new slate roof on the historic Sattazahn Lutheran Church in Jonestown, showcasing his dedication and commitment to quality craftsmanship.
Outside of his professional pursuits, Steven found solace and joy in various outdoor activities. Whether he was playing ice hockey, golfing, or fishing, he thrived in the tranquility of nature. However, his greatest passion was undoubtedly the time spent with his beloved sons. Steven’s magnetic personality and zest for life helped him forge countless friendships wherever he went. He had an innate ability to create memorable moments and spread joy to those around him. Steven’s absence leaves a void that will be felt deeply by everyone fortunate enough to have known him.
