On December 3, 2010, our beloved Stephen left us but also left a his mark on this world not by the way of preaching but by doing.

Stephen influenced many souls throughout his life and now he lives through those he helped. May the memory of his life's work live forever. 

Born on June 29, 1962, Stephen was always excited about life. His family, especially his many nieces and nephews, were often enthralled by the exciting tales of his life adventures. Stephen  had many exciting jobs, especially his time in Hawaii while he served his country in the United States Navy. He was keen journalist, marketer and won dozens of military awards for his achievements. While in Hawaii he made many lifelong friends and also became an accomplished competitive canoeist.

Most recently, Stephen had his own business  manufacturing landscape and memorial rocks for the death care industry. Stephen was loved by his employees and his many friends whom he loved and supported in return. Stephen's effervescent and optimistic personality brightened up any room he entered. He helped many in achieving their goals and dreams. We will forever love him and the legacy he left us.

Stephen leaves numerous relatives: mother and stepfather, Georgia and Vince DiGuilio and father and stepmother Larry and Pat Hartmann; Seven brothers and sisters; brothers John (wife Monica), George (wife Denise), Jerry, Patrick (wife Inga) and youngest brother David; Sister Therese, Stepsister Kim (husband Bob); and 15 nieces and nephews.
