Stephen enjoyed learning. As a nurse he hopped around learning new services and techniques as much a management would allow. His computer skills allowed him to often fix computerized systems without needing to always call the tech department. He also loved history and spent his off time reading about the history of medicine when he wasn’t doing some household project. Stephen was a mister fix it and enjoyed doing work with his hands around the house. He loved family time sitting around, joking with his kids whenever possible. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
