October 28th, 2016 is when he married his caring, loving wife Johnna Gutierrez. He loved all 9 of his children, and all 8 of his Grandchildren. In his free time, Steven loved to play guitars, listen/ make music to post for others to hear and get joy from. He loved to barbecue on the weekends (if the weather permitted lol), play table games with family on friday nights, and liked having his grandkids over so they could eat all his favorite snacks. Steven started his mornings at 5:45 bright eyed and bushy tailed just to get to work early to start his day. Counseling, talking to people, and helping others was his passion and what he longed to do in his lifetime. If he wasn't talking to clients in his office, he would have heart to hearts with his own children at any time they felt the need to vent or when they felt like things got hard they knew they could talk to him. He was a great listener when someone just wanted to vent to get things off of their chest. He was a loving and caring person, and was always a phone call away regardless of the time of day it was. Steven would always give to others no matter if he had it for himself or not. Steven loved getting together with his friend Tony, and when they would get together they would have jam sessions and just play all kinds of different guitars and would record music.
