Steve had an honest interest in the younger family members. He would ask them questions about what they were doing and what they thought about their future. He did this with open ears but without judgement. As his nephew said: He was a great guy who I always enjoyed talking to because he always listened and that's a quality I respect a lot. He was always good for a laugh.
