Steve was born on January 23, 1949 in Portland, Oregon, to his parents Mildred and Myron Christensen.

Steve’s passion was his time at Fairway Village Golf Course with friends, and would have at any time told you about his three “Hole in Ones”. He also enjoyed time at home collecting and sorting Football Cards.
