Steve graduated from Longstreet High School in May of 1955. He married Mary Maxine Evans on June 29, 1955. They were married for 68 wonderful years. He worked for Kansas City Southern Railroad and Union Pacific Railroad for 41 years. He loved sports. He knew everything about LSU sports. He loved his camp, fishing, riding his tractor, working in his yard, and going to see his nieces, Britlyn and Maddie Garrett’s ball games. He also loved spending time with them at the camp and just loving life. He had the best sense of humor. Anybody that was around him, found that out very quickly. He was ambidextrous but mostly wrote with his right hand. He batted baseballs with his left hand. He was quick-witted and enjoyed talking to his good friends. He always had a good story and was great at telling them.
