Stephen Alan McNaughton
December 21, 1950 – March 22, 2018
Stephen McNaughton, age 67, passed away peacefully on March 22nd, 2018, after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and brother. Stephen was born and raised in Coeymans, NY. He graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam (where he studied clarinet), and also earned a Masters degree from SUNY Stony Brook. Steve McNaughton worked in the Middle Country School District for 32 years, where he shared his love of music with hundreds of students over the years. He began at Oxhead Road Elementary School, moved on to Holbrook Road Elementary School and then taught at Newfield High School for 20 years. There he conducted the marching band, concert band, jazz ensemble and the pit orchestra for 19 musicals. A service will be held at O.B. Davis Funeral Homes, 2326 Middle Country Road, Centereach, NY on Saturday, April 7th, 2018 from 2 to 5 pm. We will be establishing a music scholarship in his honor for students in the Middle Country School District. Details to follow. Stephen leaves behind his wife, Constance Nola McNaughton; two children, Ryan & his wife Anastasia, and Marissa McNaughton; his grandson, Kirill Sebastian McNaughton; and his brothers, Michael, David and Jeffrey McNaughton. We hope he is reunited with his parents, Malcolm & Antoinette McNaughton, and his sister, Christine McNaughton Mara, somewhere up in the heavens.
