Steve and his wife Kathy visited Manoir Hovey for a week in 1979. They were so captivated by its charm that they arranged to buy the resort. Over the years, they have created a much more luxurious property and added all modern comforts, but the charismatic character of the place has not changed. Steve has now handed day-to-day management of the resort to his son Jason. Steve has been an annual financial supporter of the Grace Village and many other not for profit organizations . Steve has been very active since its renaissance as a Director and Co-Chairman of Fundraising at Quebec Lodge. Quebec Lodge Outdoor Centre supports the activities of a day and overnight camp that combines Environmental Education with classic camp fun.
