He is survived by two sisters, R. Christine Burnett and Sarah (Sally) B. Johnson. He is also survived by two nieces and a nephew, three great nephews and one great-niece.
After graduating from St. John's College, Annapolis, MD, he worked as a blacksmith creating ornamental ironwork in several places in the Alexandria, VA area. He later co-owned a jewelry shop making some of the jewelry that it sold. His artistic ability was evident in all these projects.
Steve became learning about computers when he was still in High School and took summer courses to learn more. Throughout his life, he was very interested in all that could be done with computers. He was eventually to teach the skills involved and later worked in the field full time. He was most recently employed as a Data Base Administrator at Fannie Mae in Herndon, VA.
Steve's many interests included the natural world. He and his mother often visited the Bombay Hook Park in Delaware where they saw many wild animals and birds, especially during migratory seasons. For this reason, the family is asking that donations to the Nature Conservancy or the Audubon Society be made in lieu of flowers.
