He also had a large aquarium and knew the name of every tropical fish and what other fish they were compatible with.  As he grew up his interests grew with him. He loved photography, studied Spanish and Latin, and anything else that would challenge him.

Stephen had a great sense of humor and absolutely loved playing practical jokes on unsuspecting family members and friends. He had a great love for his family.  Stephen was a one of kind type of guy that will be greatly missed.
