Stephen (Steve) was born in Cortland, NY on April 24, 1951. Steve moved to Rochester, NY in 1962 where he graduated from Greece Arcadia High School in 1969. Steve met his wife, Kathy, originally in Junior High School in Hilton, NY, then again when they were 19 years old partying after studying for college and nursing school exams.
Steve and Kathy were married in 1972 and then had their first child, Andrew, later that year. Steve started his Insurance Agency in 1973, and then had their second child, Kristen, in 1975. Steve and Kathy moved to Spencerport, NY in 1977, where they still reside today.
Steve had many different interests and hobbies during his life, including golf, boating, playing the tuba and bass guitar, as well as all things sports-related. However, he was first and foremost a family man and enjoyed spending time with Kathy, his children and grandchildren. A long-time Buffalo Bills fan, Steve enjoyed sharing his love and knowledge of football with his family, who are now avid fans as well. He also loved being able to bring his family on vacations, often in Florida during the winter and the Finger Lakes in the summer. Steve will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
