Stephen was a lover of nature. He spent many hours roaming in the woods. His good friend, Dave Mercer, mentioned while he was visiting Steve that he knew every plant, tree, rock and shrub that the woods held. His passion in his later years was for prospecting and he spent many an hour searching the land for that elusive pot of gold. He loved to share his passion and took his good friend Tyler under his wing and taught him everything he needed to know to find that pot of gold. There was not a vehicle Steve couldn't fix. If he wasn't in the woods then guaranteed he was under a bonnet.
Stephen was loved by many, he enriched many lives and will be missed by all.
In keeping with Stephen's wishes cremation will take place.
