Steve retired after a 35-year career with the Atlantic Pacific Tea Co. (A&P); and later spent his free time rebuilding and overseeing operations at a number of horse farms across New Jersey. Horses were a passion he shared with his daughter, Lisa. Steve was also an avid hunter, fisherman, gun collector and all around handy man. He was friendly, warm, caring and generous and will be missed by many. Steve was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He is survived by his wife Michele of 40 years. He is predeceased by his son Christopher and survived by his son Michael and wife Jennifer; and his daughter Lisa and her boyfriend, Hugo.
