He was currently working for We Haul For You (moving company) in Holdingford and thoroughly enjoyed his work and co-workers. Steven lived his life by the motto, “Work Hard, Play Hard.” He enjoyed working in his yard, tending to his garden and flowers and had an incredible ability to fix almost anything. In his free time, he enjoyed agate and mushroom picking, wine making and watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. His passion in life was spending time with his family, especially watching Dylan and Cheryl play sports. His favorite hobbies were spending time in the outdoors, hunting, fishing and especially ice fishing which he enjoyed the most. Steven will forever be remembered for his great sense of humor, his incredible physical strength and the love and dedication he showed to his loving family. He was dearly loved and will be dearly missed.
