He retired from Security National Bank as a Vice President after 30 years and also served as a Moorefield Township Trustee for 23 years.

After retirement, Steve began volunteering for Community Hospital and continued at Springfield Regional Medical Center for 13 years, totaling 2,685 hours.

Steve was a devout Christian who was a faithful member of New Moorefield United Methodist Church and later First Christian Church, where he served with the Military Ministry.
