He worked for several years at McCain’s Foods in Florenceville before moving to Fredericton where he worked for the Provincial Government until his retirement.
Steven was a very kind person, generous to a fault and always supported his friends above and beyond. He always saw good in people no matter the circumstances. Steven was always true to his word and was always there to help those in need.
Steven had a passion for gardening and his neighbors, family and friends will really miss the bountiful garden vegetables that he grew every year. He was also an avid reader and extraordinary movie buff.
In later years, Steven started spending the winters in Jamaica for a well deserved vacation. He savoured the sun, warm temperatures and easy going lifestyle.
