Steve was born in Littlefield, TX in 1958. He grew up in the Lubbock, Lazbuddie, Earth, TX areas with a farm & ranch background. He attended Monterey High School. His primary focus was NOT academics, but calf roping and bull riding in the Tri State High School Rodeo Association. He graduated from Monterey in 1976 and then soon began college at West Texas University in Canyon, TX. Life experiences really began for Steve in October 1976. A late night phone call from his uncle that was considered a second dad came. He had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and needed Steve to finish out the farming year for him. The next day Steve withdrew from WT and moved to the Lazbuddie area. Soon he was farming, on his own, at the age of 18. In 1977 Steve married Cindy and they continued farming until 1979.
In 1980 Steve joined the Lubbock Police Department. During his rewarding 12 year career he was assigned to uniform patrol and Special Services, including the Tach Unit and narcotics units, as well as the SWAT team. Throughout the years he attended South Plains College, Wayland Baptist University, and Texas Tech University for undergraduate studies.
In 1992, even though Steve loved the Police Department, a hard decision was made. He was going back to his original plans, vet school. After being accepted to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, Steve and Cindy embarked with their two kids, Chelsey and Seth on the adventure. Vet school began in 1993. Graduation was a long four years later in 1997.
Dr. Steve’s veterinary career began in 1997 at Burleson Equine Hospital (BEH) in Burleson, TX with one of his mentors, Dr. Putnam. Soon as a shareholding partner the future looked great at BEH.
In the year 2000 another curve ball came. Dr. Steve’s mother was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. His dad was also having heart related health problems. Distance made it very hard to be in Lubbock when needed so another big decision was made. Dr. Steve left Burleson and BEH and moved back to the Lubbock area to help take care of his mother and dad.
In 2000 Dr. Steve drove into Lubbock without a job or a client. He started a mobile veterinary practice which over the next year evolved into a good business. In 2001 Dr. Steve opened a brick and mortar veterinary clinic in Wolfforth, TX which has come to be known as Frenship Vet Clinic.
Dr. Steve is also a certified firefighter and EMT and is very passionate about the fire, EMS, and police services. He is a very active member of the Wolfforth Fire/EMS Department and the Chamber of Commerce. He enjoys fly fishing, participating in steak and BBQ cook offs, tailgating at the Tech football games, and spending time with his grandkids, Bailey and Cade.
