Steve was born on February 20, 1924, in Drumright, Oklahoma; the son of Richard Augustus and Opal Mae (Ridley) Stevenson. He attended school in Tulsa at Springdale Elementary and Rogers High School. Steve later began working as a plumber's assistant with his father joining the Plumbers and Pipefitters #430 Union. Steve worked mostly in Tulsa, Wichita, Kansas and St. Louis, Missouri. On May 19, 1957, Steve was united in marriage to Doris Jean Youtsey in Mena, Arkansas. They made their initial home in Wichita returning to Mannford, Oklahoma in 1970.
