Stephen was employed as the Associate Comptroller at Columbia University and prior to this he had been employed at both the Pratt and Stevens Institutes.

He was an avid reader and book collector who had collected over 16,000 books in his lifetime.

Despite his many accomplishments, his proudest and most memorable moments were attained through time spent with his beloved wife, devoted daughters and his cherished grandchildren.

Stephen enjoyed planning outings for his grandchildren to the playground, the pool, and the movies. Of course, he loved spending time sharing his love of reading with them. He was an integral part of his grandchildren's lives and a piece of him will live in each of them forever.
