Steve and I dated off and on for a few years. I can’t believe how much we did in what now seems like such a short span of time. We spent weekend mornings playing chess and backgammon. Every once in a while Steve would let me win. Steve taught me to appreciate music, especially artists who were passionate about the music they played and not just “performing” for their fans. We went to dozens and dozens of concerts and Ranger games. He made me the hockey and music fan I am today. Steve invited my cousin and I to the firehouse so Nick could experience NYC in full effect. He spent hours talking to my grandfather about Ham Radio and when I was with him in the hospital, Steve would take care of his dog on his way to and from work. There was always lots of laughing, except for the time Steve ran out of gas on the Palisades Parkway and convinced me I would be faster at running in the snow to the gas station and getting us gas and running back. A cop pulled me over for running on the parkway, drove Steve to the gas station and made him walk back. Not a fun day to say the least. But....I wouldn’t trade any of it. Steve’s smile and laugh were contagious and we had some of the best times together.

Steve, you are truly missed!!! What I wouldn’t give to talk to you one last time.

I’m having a hard time writing this cousin. You should still be here with us making more memories, making more people laugh, but God had other plans for you. Steve, there were quite a few years difference in age between us so we didn’t really get to know each when you were a kid. However, when you were about 11 years old, video cameras were still a novelty instead of a necessity. I was video taping the reception at Manhattan College for my daughter, Mary’s Christening. I must say that the camera got a good workout that day starting off with your Aunt Betty (Duggan) and Nanny singing all of the old tunes. But you definitely stole the show with your rendition of “I wish I were an Oscar Myer Weiner”. You were a hit until you started to sing it for the 4th time. Suddenly, your singing was interrupted by one of the Manhattan College Brothers who took you to the Manhattan Jaspers basketball game. 😊

We would see each other occasionally after that and 10 years later we worked together in the hi-rise buildings in Manhattan. Steve, you brightened up everyone’s day just by being you. I never called you Stephen, I hope that didn’t make you mad, but of course not, I don’t think anything made you mad.

Steve, please keep an eye on all of us and put in a good word.

God Bless You, Stephen! You are missed. 😢

So many of us feel a void with Stephen’s untimely Passing . I will always remember Stephen as a fun loving, positive and genuine person. He will realize how much he’s missed on earth as soon as his parents are done hugging him in Heaven!

Stephen was a faithful volunteer at Meals On Wheels he delivered Route 9 for us in Nyack every other Wednesday. He was always happy to help and made everyone smile when he stopped by to see us. He will be greatly missed by the clients and the staff here at Meals On Wheels.

My best memories were just spending hot summer nights, Stephen, Roe and I out in the hot tub just talking and laughing. Hope you find that hot tub in heaven.
