Family and Basketball
Stephen V. W. Mulderry, the sixth of eight children, had a way of making his presence known. "If you met him, you would remember," said his younger brother, Andrew Mulderry. "He was just a ball of energy in the most casual of circumstances."
Mr. Mulderry, 33, a vice president for equity trading at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, commanded attention with his quick wit and willingness to meet new people. He was also hard to miss, at 6 foot 2 and 180 pounds. His lanky frame lent itself well to his favorite sport, basketball. A point guard, he graduated in 1990 as an all-American from the University of Albany.
"He loved basketball," Andrew Mulderry said. "But he had four passions: friends, family, work and basketball. He was an incredible source of love and support for me. Even in the midst of this horrible circumstance, I feel nothing but blessed for the older brother I have."
