Steve worked as a precision machinist at LeRoi International for 34 years; after the company transitioned to Gardner Denver he continued as a subcontractor performing specialty tooling and sharpening of equipment.  Steve was one of few people in the world who could perform this kind of work.  He was also employed by Crown International for 12 years where he was a skilled CNC machinist with an exceptional understanding of programing.  Steve retired in 2020.  He graduated from Fort Loramie High School in 1974 where he was known as “Brains.” Steve excelled in shot put and discus, like his father before him, and his son after him.   He belonged to several unions and clubs over the years.  Steve was a loving father and partner, and he and Toshie regularly attended community events such as car shows, fairs, festivals, and live music.   He was an avid reader and loved discussing history, movies, and poetry.  Steve was known for his detailed knowledge of his many hobbies and his dry sense of humor.
