After completion of high school, he attended Tulsa Welding School and completed the training. Steven became a welder by trade.
God has always been a part of Steven’s life. He accepted Christ at an early age.
Being the youngest of ten children meant that there was always love to give and received. Steven loved his family and his family loved him back. He loved to laugh and always had a joke or a funny story to share. His joys in life were simple but they made him smile. Those joys were his children, rhythm and blues music and barbequing for his family.
