Steve leaves his parents, Bob and Sally of Fargo, North Dakota, as well as a sister, Martha and an older brother Rob.

Steve was known as a loyal friend, a sensitive, considerate and caring person who reached out in a special way to many people. He loved to explore new places and ideas with imagination and an open mind. Steve had deep respect and love for his family. He set high goals for himself and worked hard to attain them. His sense of humor and warm smile were always present. A memorial was established in his name at the First Presbyterian Church of Fargo, North Dakota, as well as a scholarship in his name at Syracuse University.
