Stephen W. Andrasik, 82, formerly of New York died of natural causes on May 18, 2020.
Stephen was preceded in death by his father Stephen Andrasik, a military man killed in WWII, his mother Anne Borderman, and sister Patricia Juviler. He is survived by Barbara, his devoted wife of 3 8 years, son Stephen J. Andrasik and wife Hong Andrasik, granddaughters Heather and Abby, stepchildren Charles Sciascia and wife Agnes, and Lisa Scally and husband Raouf,
step-grandchildren Charles Sciascia, Margaux Scally, and Noah Scally, and nephews David Scarfo, Dan Scarfo, and Mark Juviler.
Stephen was very tall (6’8″), confident, fearless, and an extremely hard worker. He was highly intelligent and had an incredibly creative side. He built his own home improvement business in New York as well as a successful consignment business in Florida with his wife Barbara. In addition to his work, Stephen was most passionate about gardening and about saltwater boating and fishing. Later in life he came to enjoy cooking just about anything you could imagine. He had a strong interest in science and loved science fiction movies and discussions about the universe.
Stephen’s son was very close to him and their relationship grew continuously over the years. His son says that much of who he is today is a direct result of his father’s influence. He has many wonderful memories and adventures with his dad off shore fishing for sharks or just bay fishing. He felt as if he was the luckiest boy in the neighborhood. Stephen taught his son many things and they had many wonderful memories together. He taught his son and others to be strong and fearless in life and not to worry about what you could not control.
He will be deeply missed.
