Stephen was happiest outdoors; whether hunting, fishing, boating or riding his motorcycle. He and his wife Elsa went on many motorcycle trips with friends. He enjoyed taking his family boating in Lake Livingston. He also loved spending time at the beach and floating the river. More than anything he loved his grandchildren; he wouldn’t miss their games or events for anything. He will be remembered for his smile and infectious laugh.
