Steven furthered his education at Western Iowa Tech in Sioux City, where he studied horticulture. Steven was an avid outdoorsman, loving fishing, camping, and gardening. He was a Boy Scout growing up, and continued as a Boy Scout Leader.

He was a man of faith, enjoying his membership to the Rejoice Community Church in Le Mars.
