His passions included coaching his children's sports teams, ping-pong, drumming, and cooking, especially making homemade pasta with the hand-operated machine his beloved Aunt Rose and Uncle Vincent gave him. He cherished time spent with his large family and many friends, a good debate, and the sharing of ideas. Steve is preceded in death by his parents Jerry and Esther, and his brother Paul. Surviving family members include his children Nick and Stephanie (John), sister Dina (Andre), and brothers Rob and Gene (Jill), numerous nephews and nieces, Donna, and many other loving family members.
