He took college courses at Cambridge Community College and Dunwoody College. Steven had a passion for fixing cars, tinkering with electronics and building stuff. He prided himself on being a Jack-of-all-trades master of none. In reality if he was good at something, he was really good. Boy if he didn’t know what he was doing did he leave one heck of a mess but he wasn’t giving up! He will always be known for his great ideas at bizarre times and unfinished projects due to those great ideas. His most prized possession was his 1979 Chevy Camaro.
