Steven was born September 10, 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, son of the late Paul H. Henze and the late Rose Marie Henze (nee - Liefholt). He is the beloved husband of 30 years of Lisa Henze (nee-Boesler), father of Lexi Thompson (Darren), Matthew Henze (Natalie) and Jakob Henze (LeAnne); GPop of Sydnee, Zoee and Maverrick Thompson, brother of David Henze and his wife Diane, son-in-law of Art Boesler and his wife the late Donna; brother-in-law of Eric Boesler and his wife Theresa, Lori Carroll and her husband Kevin, Susan Boesler Lee and her husband Ron, and the late Robert Boesler; uncle of Erik, Douglas, Lucas, Carly, Emily, Flynn, Isaiah, Ryan and Naomi.

Steve was raised in the Ardsley section of Abington Township. He was a 1981 graduate of Abington High School, and a 4 year varsity letterman in football. He was also a 4 year letterman in lacrosse and a member of the PA State Champions in 1981. He went on to attend Shippensburg University and played defensive end for the football team.
