He was a native of West Virginia and a fan of WVU Mountaineer football.  He was an avid baseball fan and especially of the New York Yankees.  He moved to Weaverville in 1990 and was a successful publisher for over 25 years.  Steve was a car enthusiast with a special interest in Corvettes, Porsches and Mustangs, but a 1955 Chevrolet was his dream car.

Steve is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Janie; two sons, Brian and his wife, Angela and Blake and his wife, Holly; and two grandchildren, Sterling and Aiden.
