Stephen or “Uncle Steve” as he was known to his family and friends was a free spirit; he enjoyed traveling and spending time at his trailer in Maine. Stephen loved Maine, its landscapes, mountains and rocky coast line. Stephen was very comfortable with nature, he had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening on his property in Maine.
Stephen enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a great sense of humor and loved to act goofy for his nieces, nephews and friends children. His endearing personality and willingness to help others drew people to him; his friends ranged from infants to the elderly and he just fit right in with any group.
