The Guest Book is expired.
One of seven children, he leaves behind his mother, Crisula; brothers Jon, Gregory and Jimmy; and sisters, Georgia and Elaine. He was also uncle to fourteen and great uncle to five.
Steve's parents, Angelo (deceased) and Crisula raised their family in San Francisco before moving to Hillsborough in 1967 and Atherton in 1973.
He worked the family shoe manufacturing business from the age of six and following his education at the University of California, Berkeley joined his father in a new real estate investment venture. For the past 38 years he worked with the family at the American Industrial Center.
With a big heart, Steve was actively involved in many community organizations. Some of his favorites were: Big Brothers, Sierra Club, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Diabetes Association; however, there are many, many more. He loved sporting events and was a regular fan at Giants, 49'ers and Warrior games.
From the age of 12, Steve fought valiantly against the ravages of childhood diabetes, never burdening others with his pain but rather lifting up everyone around him with his remarkable sense of humor. All of his friends and family and especially his wife and daughter will sorely miss this wonderful man who taught us all the meaning of compassion and courage.
There will be a memorial service and celebration of his life Friday afternoon, February 22, 2013 in Menlo Park. Please contact the family at: email@example.com for additional information. In lieu of flowers the family appreciates your donation to the American Diabetes Society or another charity.
