Born in Dos Palos, California
Resided in Salinas, California
Steve was born in Dos Palos, CA to Ralph and Jennie Moreno. His family eventually moved to Salinas, and he graduated from Alisal High School in 1969. Throughout his high school years he played football, and was a running back. He was hired by PG&E in 1971 and worked as a Machinist, and then a Gas Service Representative until his retirement in 2015. Steve received numerous awards and certifications throughout his career with PG&E including his 44 years of service plaque.
Steve loved traveling the country to watch Nascar Racing (Jimmie Johnson was his favorite driver), and was a die-hard Raiders fan. He enjoyed frequenting casinos and dancing to old school music with Tina, loved animals, and had an amazing sense of humor. But more than anything else, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, watching his grandchildren play sports, and having family gatherings at his place. He will be missed, along with his beautiful smile and laughter.
Steve is preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Jennie Moreno, and former spouse Veronica Moreno.
