Steve spent his early years in Bremerton before the family moved to Port Orchard.This is where Steve grew up,graduating from South Kitsap High School in 1979.

From a young age, Steve’s natural leadership skills and zest for life was readily evident. Many teachers suggested to him he should consider a career as a counselor or a teacher.He had a passion for sports his entire life.He loved football and wrestling,but it was baseball that became his obsession. Early on, he developed a love of the game, and coaching became his true and natural calling.

Steve became the head coach of the Vashon High School baseball team in 2004. It was a job he held dear and loved more than anything. Some of his most cherished memories involved coaching the kids and watching them grow into young men. His very proudest moment was the 2016 team winning the state 1A championship, after which, he retired from active coaching duties.

Steve began his grocery career at Midtown Grocery in Bremerton, moving to Albertson’s in Port Orchard where he worked his way up the ranks. He decided to take a job driving for Frito Lay in order to spend more time with his son. His route took him to Vashon Thriftway, where he was offered a job. Steve spent the next 30 years in the meat department there, becoming a community fixture in that position. He always had a warm smile and heartfelt greeting for everyone. His positivity was infectious, and he always made everyone feel welcome. His unrelenting Energizer-Bunny personality inspired many to tackle life like he did and leave nothing on the bench.
