Steve grew up on the family farm south of Foam Lake, SK. He worked as a butcher in Kelvington then moved to Moose Jaw where he joined the team at Ricken’s Meats. Steve also worked with his cousin at Adams Painting & Decorating for many years before going into business for himself until he retired.
Steve enjoyed his family and helping anyone who needed help. He had many interests including fishing, curling and was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching the Habs and Riders every opportunity he could. Steve also loved gardening in the summer and took great pleasure in caring for his four legged friend “Willie”.
