Steven S. Hare STILLWATER – Steven S. Hare, 62, affectionately known by many as “Stevie Wonder”, entered Heaven, a world without pain or suffering, on Tuesday, Oct. 15th, 2013. There to greet him with open arms were his father, mother, sister Nancy, brother Nelson, nephew Chuckie, niece Marty and many cherished friends and relatives. Left behind to mourn his loss are his caring wife Cindy, sons Michael Benjamin and Steven Eric, daughter Liz, grandchildren Ethan and Grace, sisters Susanne, Sheryl, Cheryl and Kim, brother Bob, step-mother Grace, nieces, nephews and their families and many friends. Steve was the son of the Nelson and Marcella “Sally” Hare. He was born May 26, 1951 in Troy, NY. His early childhood years were spent shining shoes up and down the streets of Lansingburgh. Later he learned to love hand fishing for trout in the streams near Westerlo. He joined the
US Marine Corps
in 1968. After his return from the service, he worked for the Union Pacific Railroad. Later he became a long distance haul trucker, first with his brother Nels and then as an independent contractor. That's how he met the love of his life, Cindy Albers in Rochester, Minnesota. They married and started their family. While in Rochester, Steve drove for Yellow Cab. In 1982, Steve and his young family returned to upstate NY, settling near Stillwater, and first worked for King Fuels before ending his work career with Time Warner Cable in Saratoga Springs. His spare time was spent with people he loved, and he loved a good time. A member of Post 91 American Legion of Mechanicville, and St. Peters Lutheran Church of Malta, Stevie spent many days helping his friends at Costanzo's Restaurant and Lounge of Mechanicville. Despite health challenges the last few years, Stevie reached out to others, volunteering to deliver Meals on Wheels and helping wherever he could. He will be sorely missed. A Funeral Service will be held 11 AM on Monday, Oct. 21st at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, 2776 Route 9, Malta. There will be no public calling hours.
