In 2016, he welcomed his first grandchild into the world, Vanessa Williams. On May 21, 2021, he married his best friend and soul mate, Lisa Diane Reigh, after over a decade of being together. His family was the most important thing in his life. Steve was a devoted husband and father. He enjoyed driving his tractor and his big septic truck. He was a hard worker and dedicated to his passions which included vintage cars and rare coins. He always made sure his mother was taken care of and had everything she needed.
