One of his most memorable jobs was when he became an employee for City of Philadelphia working in the Water Department, where he became a pro in navigating through the city.
Stevie had a love for many things, especially Philadelphia Sports. Growing up he was a huge hockey fan. Stevie also loved the finer things in life. He took pride in his appearance always staying on top of the latest styles. Cars was another thing he loved, if you knew Stevie you knew he took pride in having nice, clean cars.
What he loved most was his family. The love he had for his wife and children was unconditional and everlasting. He always wanted the best for his children. He kept them in extra curricular activities and educational programs all throughout their childhood. He was family oriented and looked out for his love ones whenever he could.
