Steve started his career at 16 in his home town funeral home and worked there through high school. After finishing his education he completed his apprenticeship in Aurora, and stayed for two years gaining valuable experience. He came to Chicago for more opportunities and met his wife Chris as a bonus!
When John G. Adinamis hired Steve in 1987 his odyssey with the Greek community began.
As part of his indoctrination John took him out on Western Avenue to instruct him on how to sweep the sidewalk! It occurred to him that this man was rather detail oriented.
Steve feels fortunate that he was always allowed the time he needed to do the best job he was capable of, and develop his skills in the preparation room. He is grateful that Vanessa shares John’s exemplary level of service and dedication required to maintain this quality of work that the families have so depended on over the decades. Vanessa and her staff continue to strive to deliver that attention to detail that is John G. Adinamis’ legacy.
Steve considers it a honor and privilege to have been able to share the many bitter-sweet moments with so many of our families.
