During his service, he earned the Victory Medal, American Area Campaign Medal, and the Asiatic Pacific Area Campaign Medal. While in the Navy, he also held the record for rope climbing in a sit-down form, hands only, no leg assist. He also boxed in the Navy and in Golden Gloves.
   Upon his return, he worked as HR Officer for National Super Service, Continental Coffee, Allied Chemical, and Schultz Diecasting.

Condolences to the family. I worked with your Dad in the early 70's at National Super Service. He hired me to work my senior year of high school. Had many fond memories of your Dad. He was a fair person to work with and certainly taught me a lot. To this day I can still remember the family address on Glenton Dr. Yes, the desks were that close.

What a beautifully written obituary!! It seems we learn more about a person after their death than when they were alive! Uncle Steve will be missed. His smile, laugh and fun personality are unforgettable. Aunt Mitty and Uncle Steve together for eternity. Our condolences to the entire family. Geof and Kathy Garrison
