Steve grew up in the Quad Cities area, where he attended United Township High School. After school, he worked various manufacturing jobs before meeting Sheryl, and moving to Centerville. Steve earned his CDL, and loved driving his semi throughout the country. After retiring from driving, Steve enjoyed working at Walmart, as well as his interactions with his co-workers and the public. Steve was always a hard worker- a trait he passed on to his children.
