Steven was a contractor and at one point in time owned his own finish work business called, Ace’s Finish. Steven had a creative mind and enjoyed wood working and creating things for himself and his family. He made beautiful cabinets, jewelry boxes and even a large 3 story doll house for his daughter that he took great pride in. Steven also had a love for motorcycles and scooters, and mostly, his Vespa. Steven was a special man who spent a lot of his time in the Fresno Tower District playing open mic nights at The Babylon, Strummers and many other places. Steven also loved Santa Cruz where he would vacation often to skateboard, ride bikes/scooter and enjoy the scenery. Steven was a man that kept to himself and some would describe him at times as docile, but for those that truly knew him, knew his laugh that stretched for miles and his sense of humor that would leave you in tears. He is missed dearly and loved immensely. Steven Ortiz, a loving son, brother, father and husband and will be remembered dearly for the love he gave and shared through his music.
