Running around with the Dever Street Crew during the Summer and each day after school was one of his favorite things to do.
Steve was a faithful friend, cousin, and grandson. He shared beautiful relationships with both of his grandmothers and took great joy in doing things for them and helping them however he could.

During his eight year Air Force service, he was warded the Bronze Star Medal and Air Force Outstanding Unit Award amongst other commendations. In the course of his Air Force tenure, Steve became a father and welcomed his eldest son, Darius Henderson, into the world. After his discharge from the service , Steve returned to his community and continued to build his life. after several years, he married Corrie Moran and soon his youngest son, John Henderson was born. This marriage also blessed him with his first daughter, Nia Jordan. Steve enjoyed being a father and sharing special moments with his children throughout the years.
