Steve enjoyed a full life to the end.

Steve also had a strong love of golf, enjoyed baseball and watching football, and often travelling to Ottawa to see his children and all their academic and athletic accomplishments, taking great pleasure in attending an NHL Game with the kids each time he went to the City.
