His family moved to Medicine Hat, Alberta in 1967 where Steve attended school and lived the majority of his childhood and adult life. He soon followed the footsteps of his father into the construction industry where he found his art as a concrete finisher. Steve was well known in the concrete industry and was very good at his job. He was respected and admired by all of his co-workers. Everyone that knew Steve liked him and he will be deeply missed by many. A celebration of Steve’s life will be held at a later date.
