On November 2nd, 1984, Steve met the love of his life, Rhonda, on a blind date. They got married on March 8th, 1986 and enjoyed 38 wonderful years of marriage together. They spent their marriage raising their family, sharing adventures, and celebrating life’s moments.

Steve was active in every aspect of his sons’ lives; whether it was coaching soccer, volunteering at school events, or helping fundraise for field trips. He enjoyed staying close to home, attending Gamecocks football games with his youngest son, Alexander.

He then worked for Little Debbie (McKee Foods Corporation) as a District Sales Manager, retiring in 2015 after 20 years with the company. After a couple years of leisure, Steve worked part-time at Hendrick Lexus of Charleston, where he remained until he fully entered retirement in March of 2022.
