Steve was a graduate of the Baltimore County school system attending Chase Elementary, Middle River Junior High and Perry Hall Senior High. He played trumpet in the schools’ bands from 4th grade through senior high. Steve was also an avid outdoors man prior to a hunting accident that occurred on November 4, 1989. Besides being an excellent bricklayer, Steve enjoyed doing commercial crabbing and fishing as a sideline. As a brick mason he worked on a number of buildings in downtown Baltimore and Baltimore County. He also worked on the Lauenstein building, now known as the Essex Co-op.
Following his terrible accident which left him paralyzed below his chest and wheelchair bound, he was able to drive using hand controls. Steve spent many hours at the gym working out in order to maintain his upper body strength. In spite of his obstacles, Steve became a “Prize” winning decorative decoy carver. His carvings were displayed and entered in competition at Havre-de Grace, North East, Easton and the ‘Ward Brothers’ shows in Ocean City MD . Steve also enjoyed his relationships with other carvers throughout the country and Canada.
Steve will be sorely missed by his family and many friends.
