With humor, an infectious smile, and charismatic personality, he was a cherished part of the community of Lodi, where he grew up, and in Hackensack where he lived in his adulthood. He held on to friendships from early childhood and was very pleased to make new friends whenever the opportunity was presented.
He was a star football player for Lodi High School (‘70), as was his father, and proudly attended Adelphi University on a football scholarship.
Steve was employed by Cowan's Sports Center of Hackensack for 29 years.
Steve was an accomplished & published songwriter, singer, musician and a member of the Recording Academy. He privileged stages, studios and firesides for more than 60 years. Writing many songs, he was able to compile some of them on the CDs he released in the early 2000's: “From the Basement to the Kitchen” and “All Alone Tonight”.
He very much enjoyed making and playing music with and for family & friends, if only to bring a smile.
He also enjoyed cooking and sharing his delicious recipes. Steve made an indelible mark in the lives of everyone he met, and he will be ever with us and never leave our hearts.
