A strong patriot, whose love for country never waivered. There was always a flag flying at home and he always took the opportunity to discuss politics with those willing.

Steve was a diehard New York Yankees fan and a devoted Buffalo Bills fan. He loved landscaping and was an avid golfer and lately had taken up pickle ball. His love of the Bills remained strong even after attending each of the Bills four consecutive losing Super Bowls.

In recent years, Steve has spent much of the “off seasons” in Florida lowering his handicap, enjoying the sun and making new friends.

During summer Steve spent much of his time mowing grass near Chautauqua Lake as well as mowing the grass on Chautauqua Lake for the Chautauqua Lake Association.
