Steven was born July 16th, 1960 in Baltimore, MD to Richard and Marilou Sterling. In high school, he developed a love for music through playing saxophone. After graduating high school, Steven attended Bucks County Community College in Pennsylvania.

Ultimately, Steven was an accomplished entrepreneur, business owner, and brilliant musician.
Steven married his wife/best friend, Doreen in 1990. They raised six children: Crystal (husband, Joshua), Christopher (wife, Diana), Genna (husband, Marco), Erin (husband, Patrick), Isaac (wife, Tatiana), and Kathleen. They have six grandchildren: Makai, Autumn, Remington, Avery, Nora, and Wren. He was a loving father and grandfather.
He enjoyed spending time working on cars. He loved serving others in his church and community; but, most of all, he loved spending time with and serving his family. He was a member of Bible Church International in Randolph, NJ where he was on staff with the leadership team. Steven and Doreen relocated to Jacksonville, FL in 2015, to attend Charis Bible College and actively serve in Momentum Church together.
