Steve originally became a member of Hope Lutheran 30 years ago when he was transferred to Calgary from Ontario by his employer. He was active in coordinating the church’s annual golf tournament and organizing the baseball team in the early 2000s at the bequest of Pastor Stewart. Steve left the church for a period of time but returned as an active member around 2017. He is currently in his third year on council as the personnel representative and has been involved with a number of other volunteer duties. Steve is an avid golfer and sports enthusiast. He and his wife, Marianne, have a myriad of children and grandchildren spread across Alberta and Ontario so lots of travel is involved.
