Stephan was a mountain of a man with a big smile that could light up the room when he entered. He kept people rolling in laughter because he could find humor in the most mundane life circumstances. When he was a child his best memory was being raised on a farm with his sister’s, mother, father, and farm animals. He was a brick/stone mason & co-owner of Edify Masonry Construction with Louie Callari. Stephan snow plowed for Jimmy Mastro in the harsh winter months of Rochester, NY. He loved life, had a passion for music, golf, bowling, football “Pittsburgh Steelers”, traveling (site-seeing), food, beer/wine, festivals (you could always catch him at a festival in Rochester, NY); most importantly, he loved his family. He was also very proud of his Austrian heritage. Stephan had a big heart, and he was always there for us! Sweet Dreams in your transition Dad, we will love and miss you. Until we meet again.
Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
