Steven struggled for many years with major depressive disorder which lead to self-medicating, substance abuse and recently a traumatic brain injury. We learned on Friday, May 13, that after battling for many years, he decided to take his own life.
Steve was a bright, caring, kind and empathetic person with a huge heart for others. Though we are heartbroken, we hope that he has finally found the peace and understanding he so longed for in life.
