Strez was born in Bay City on February 9, 1965, the son of Thomas J. and Clara M. (Laskowski) Strzelecki. Growing up, Steve enjoyed watching The Monkees and walking like them with family on the beach in California, along with hiking and running with his father. He graduated from Anchor Bay High School in 1983 and went on to work as the world's best professional mixologist, always making sure his patrons were well taken care of. It's at Hamilton Street Pub where he met the love of his life, Lisa Haas, who survives, along with his mother, Clara; sister, Sheri Strzelecki (Brian); nephew, Derek Strzelecki (Victoria); great-niece, Genevieve; Godparents, Harry (Elaine) Strzelecki; aunts and uncles, Daniel (Linda) Strzelecki, Germaine (Maurice) O'Daniel, Thomas Laskowski, Allen (Judy) Laskowski, Terry Laskowski, along with many cousins and countless friends.

Strzelecki; grandparents, Harry and Agnes (Dabrowski) Strzelecki and Walter "Bullit" and Eugenia (Banaszak) Laskowski, and his uncle and aunts, Walter "Jack" Laskowski, and Julie and Anne Laskowski.
