Steven T. Bishop Obituary
Steven T. Bishop

AGE: 68 • Waretown

Steven T. Bishop, 68, of Waretown passed away after a very brief illness on July 20, 2017 surrounded by his family and dearest friends. Steve was born in Camden and was formerly of Moorestown, NJ. Steve worked for many years in the telecommunication's industry. After moving to Waretown in 2004, he began working for Pacesetter Realty in Forked River. There Steve found his second "family", his coworkers who became a part of his beloved inner circle, most notably his bff's.

Steve was a huge fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. As a long time season ticket holder, Steve seldom missed attending a Phillies game with his most dear friend and Phillies phanatical partner in crime, Bob Gibson. Their pilgrimages to the games and their game time rituals were like a shared religious practice that was both amusing and endearing.

Family and friends knew Steve's tough exterior belied the tender, beautiful heart that lived within. His personal journey through life led him to a place of inner peace and joy. He shared his hard won wisdom and became a beacon and source of support and encouragement for family, friends and acquaintances. Steve's legacy is one of resilience, personal growth and loving kindness.

Steve is survived by his son, Steven J. Bishop, daughter, Natalie M. Casserly and her husband, Ernie, 5 grandchildren, Catherine, Marie, Hailey, Troy and Erin, brother David Bishop and his wife, Jean, one niece and nephew, Caitlin and Patrick, and longtime friend Bob Gibson and his wife Christie.

A Viewing will be offered on Thursday, July 27, 2017 from 7-9 pm at Riggs Funeral Home, 130 North Rt. 9, Forked River, NJ 08731. Cremation will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Steven's memory may be made to NNJGS, Area 44, 2325 Plainfield Ave., Suite 2J, South Plainfield, NJ 07080 (Memo: Steve Bishop).
