Obituary of Stephen Anthony Melfi
Please share a memory of Stephen to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
We are heartbroken to announce the death of our father, Stephen Anthony Melfi. He passed away peacefully and free of pain in his sleep at the age of 71 following a long battle with lung disease. He greatly appreciated the time his close friends and family spent with him shortly before he passed.
Stephen was a great man, a good man, and a bad man. He was authentic, and lived a life full of joy and deep hurt. He was a father to more than his own children, was loved by many and gave love freely. He loved cigarettes, cooking, cheating at cards, chaos, and his friends and family most of all. He was an old battleship that fought his end and found a way to crack a smile and a few jokes hours before he passed.
He joins his parents, Martha and Alphonse, and his son, Michael in eternity. He is survived by his wife, Ann; his children, Christopher, Anthony, Tracy, Christina, Amanda, Brandi, and David. Also surviving are his siblings, Michael, Mary, Ann, Paul, Jane, and Pat; grandchildren, Emily, Francis, Mariah, Johnathan, Bradleigh, Madison, Lorna, CJ, Rebecca, and Kennedy; and his Montana Ave. family and friends. A memorial service is being planned for warmer weather. Details will be announced once they are confirmed.
