Stephen was a very proud father of both his girls whom he loved dearly and had many fond memories of skiing in the winters and spending the summers at the cottage together.
In his earlier years he enjoyed coaching hockey for Sackville High and in the 80's fulfilled his love for speed car racing at Shubenacadie raceway. The cottage in Seafoam was a very special place for him as he loved the Northumberland Straight and took every opportunity he had to be out on the water. He worked with RJR Macdonald for many years, managed the Halifax Windjammers basketball team until he started Beam Security which he continued to operate until his retirement.
Steve had a large circle of friends that he enjoyed spending time with and was always there to lend a helping hand. You would always know when Steve was around as you would hear his unforgettable laugh from a mile. He will be dearly missed. A celebration for his life will be held at a later date.
