  1. My heart is full of so many wonderful memories of my dear cousin, Steven. Many of them around the dinner table with our family. My favorite memory is from many years ago, at Thanksgiving. My parents hosted this year, his sister and mother were flowers in the parade in NYC. We recorded it on VHS & watched it later on with the family in our drum room. We had this brown square ottoman nestled away in the corner of the room. He was sitting on it, with a big bowl of stuffing. He wasn’t using any utensils to eat – & kept putting it on his finger, telling me with was turkey p**p. He was trying to gross me out. I remember eating it right off his hand. I had to be about 8 or 9 years old. His brother Scott and my sister Marisa were in there with us also. Scott taunting us, per usual. I remember sitting on this ottoman, mainly occupied by his mega muscle body, a little sliver of corner left for me. We snuggled, and he would pick me up with one hand. Lots of laughter. I remember this smirk he would make when he looked at my sister and I. The same smirk i would see him make many years later at his nieces, Gabriella & Chiara. As the years went on, there we many occasions where we would find ourselves sitting at someone’s table, cracking chestnuts open together. I would plague him with my teenage woes, and he would always offer the most wonderful advice. He would remind me to be kind to others, learn from my experiences and remember that everyone is fighting their own battles. I cherish the 31 years of love, laughter, advice & chestnuts we shared together.
    I love you xo – Dana

  2. Steve was one of my best friends since 3rd grade. It’s hard to think of any childhood memories without him in it. Steve, Gary and I did everything together. Even though our lives went in different directions, I would think of him often.

    We lost a great friend, brother . My thoughts and prayers are with your family. You will be greatly missed

  3. Steven was part of a family that has an abundance of empathy who always look out for me, welcome me into their homes, make me feel like one of their own and always ensured that I was never alone during the holidays.

    During family holidays, Steven would always greet me with a big bear hug after which I was always happy that I hadn’t broken any ribs. Steven and I would subsequently delve into conversations on a wide range of topics. Over the years we’d discussed diverse areas such as politics, investment opportunities and travel, but my favourite conversations with Steven were when we discussed steps that people could take to make the world a kinder and more compassionate place. It is through those conversations that I will remember Steven. I’ll always laud Steven for his inquisitiveness into multiple different areas, but also his humility in not succumbing to the knowledge illusion. The image of the first time I met Steven when he gave me a colossal warm smile from the driver’s seat of the Sirina van is one that will always look back on fondly as it reminds me of both his and his family’s warmth.

    “Good-night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”

    You have my deepest condolences, Anand xxx

  4. Steve was one of my oldest friends. We grew up across the street from each other. I knew him since I was 5 years old or so. Although I am a year older than Steve was, we were always outside playing in the street. It didn’t matter what season it was, there was always something to play; hockey, baseball and football. He will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace old friend. My condolences to the Ramunni family.

  5. Maureen Robinson
    I knew Steven through his Beloved Mother Maria, His soul was Thoughtful and Kind with a
    big Heart, He accepted graciously the Prayer intentions and Rosaries I offered with gentleness and gratitude from his heart,
    My Prayer is that he be in eternal rest with all the Angels and Saints in Heaven in the Arms of Our Savior Jesus Christ. My Heart goes out to his Loving and Beautiful ,devoted Family, always Close to him. God bless you and watch over you at this time of great loss. Amen

  6. Steven is my cousin. Stevie was the most family oriented man you could ever know. He made us laugh and laughed at anything. My Aunt Marie raised an absolute great human being. He was happy for everyone. He was down to earth. He had a way of making you feel happy just being around him. He was a huge teddy bear. They always say God takes the good ones. He was the best of them. May you rest in peace with no more suffering and know how loved and missed you are Stevie. XOXO

  7. Steve and I worked together at Macy’s . Oh the trouble we would get into, and the extra long breaks we would take .
    He is the person responsible for me meeting my husband, Keith. Steve always had a smile on his face. He was kind and loving and deeply loyal to his friends and family. We are heartbroken. Mrs Ramunni, Scott and Danielle know that so many people are saddened by this and how much he meant to all of us, and so many others.
    We will be there Friday to help take our friend home.
    Keith & Gina Giacobbe

  8. All my memories of Steve is hanging out with him and Shawn. We always had many laughs and lots of good times, together with Scott. I know he is with Shawn now and at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with Scott and all of Steve’s family. My heart is broken. ❤️🙏🏼

  9. I have known Steve and his family for almost 40 years.
    I can’t think of “ Big Steve” without smiling. He was a great man , a great friend, who had a great sense of humor. He was a genuine and honest person who always had a smile on his face. and I’m proud to have called him my friend.
    Rest In Peace

  10. I met my boy Steve when we were in 6th grade at Great Hollow. We were in the same homeroom…6-3. We actually were in the same homeroom all the way through high school and we continued to hang out long past then. He was always the most genuine guy and quite funny. I will surely miss our trash talk about the Yankees/Mets and Giants/Jets. Of course he was the Mets/Jets guy as everyone knows. He will be truly missed on many levels by many people. But, as sad as I am personally, it will be impossible for me to not smile whenever I think of Steve. He was just that dude…personable, humble, and kind. My heart goes out to Scotty, Danielle, and their mom. I do take solace in knowing that Steve and Shawn are together again probably talking smack about the Giants and Jets and agreeing on how awesome the Mets are. Rest in peace brother…you will be missed but not forgotten.
