Stephen A. Kamberos, 50, beloved husband of Christine M. Kamberos (nee Semlow), passed away suddenly. Devoted father of Gus, Lou, and Ato. Loving brother of Peter, Gayle, and Georgianne (Kegan Simons), and proud uncle of Eliana. Preceded in death by his parents Anthony and Elaine (nee Stathos). Survived in death by numerous aunts, and cousins.

Born in Chicago, Steve was proud to call Oak Forest his home town, where he met his partner in life, and they returned to the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago to start their family. He was a proud graduate of Devry, where he mastered his skills in programming. He went on to form his own company, Voter Solutions, and could name many notable politicians as his clients. His passions outside of work included playing the bass guitar, taking care of numerous animals, tinkering with electronics, and of course following his favorite band, the Grateful Dead. Nothing made him prouder than being a family man, and he encouraged his “My Three Sons,” in everything they did, with Christine by his side.

He was a life-long member of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, and the generosity and compassion of the “extended family” there was of constant support. He will truly be missed by all, but his spirit will live on forever. Visitation Friday, July 31, at Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, until time of service, 10301 S. Kolmar Ave. Internment at Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to help Christine and the boys through GoFundMe.

The family invites everyone who is not able to attend, to join the virtual service where streaming will be provided on Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church's facebook. Please click the link below to be redirected on Friday Morning at 10am.

ADD A MEMORY

Christine, Pete, Gayle, and Georgianne, I am so sorry for your sudden loss. Steve was truly a good man and good human being.

Was actually thinking the other day about a fun memory we shared as teenagers.....building construction near a road adjacent to Independence Lane was in it's early stages. A handful of hardened dirt hills scattered about on this cold night. We were early teenagers and on our bikes. A few of us stood idle when I heard a 'clicking' sound approaching faster and faster. Looking to my right, appearing out of the darkness - was Steve in his long winter coat on the ten-speed, handle bars turned upwards, racing towards us and a nearby three or four foot dirt hill.....clickety........clickety....clickety......our voices stopped as Steve got airborne. Then crashing down back into the darkness of the night. Steve was okay, as were we.

Thank you for all the good memories, Steve. Say hello to Dave, and all our other friends up there with you.

I have known Steve since he was at a young age.
When he lived in Oak Forest down the street from us, we always visit him and his family.
I miss his parents Tony & Elaine.
Also, when i attended ST. Nicholas church services, i always talk with him regrading his work and his great family.
You have our deepest condolences.
We will miss you.
May you rest in peace.
Regards,
George & Stathia Xanos

I always remember Steve’s kind heart and love of animals particularly Amazon parrots and iguanas. I remember one night I think Milty the iguana climbed on my head! RIP Steve ♥️ KC of Chicago / Kansas City
