During his high school years, Stephen kept very busy with after School work, sports, and many Leisure recreational activities. He particularly enjoyed playing ice hockey in the Hockeytown League games, mostly at night. His favorite pastimes included skin diving, golf, and driving his early model Ford Mustang.

At Northeastern University he participated in the work-study program and enjoyed greatly his work at Turner Construction Company in Boston. He joined the R.0.T.C. while at Northeastern. Since those years were at the height of the Vietnam War, and even though he had no great Liking for military duty, he wanted to ready himself as much as possible in case he should be called up.
