Stephen “Steven” Paul Biasucci, 70, of East Rutherford, passed away with family by his side at Hackensack University Medical Center in the early hours of Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
Mr. Biasucci was born on Friday, October 17, 1947 at Passaic Beth Israel Hospital to the late Harry Biasucci and Josephine (Curti) Biasucci.
Steven should forever be remembered most importantly as a loyal, loving, and supportive husband, father, friend, a true family man, and a proud working class hero. Finding a sweeter, more honest, genuine, positive, selfless soul would be near impossible. How many anonymous or unsung kind gestures and charitable acts performed by this man is an immeasurable and unknown statistic. Steven never gave to get, never provided to be rewarded, and never did anything to receive praise.
As a hard worker and provider, Steven began working for various employers from his early teen years. He was a loyal employee and union shop steward for a quarter century at Flint Ink in Lodi.
A proud second generation Italian-American and lifelong, third generation resident of the Borough of East Rutherford, Steven spent the last twenty five years serving the parents and children of his hometown community as an always dependable school crossing guard.
Equally as important, Steven spent his entire life as a singer, and sharing his gift was his passion. Whether singing standards from the American songbook in bars and lounges, performing at charity functions, nursing homes, and places of worship, or simply serenading passersby with his renditions of his beloved Elvis Presley tunes from a park bench or his front porch, you couldn’t find a time when Steve wasn’t singing a song.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 40 years, Gloria Leslie (Schmidt) Biasucci; two sons, Stephen Aron Biasucci and wife, Tara Ann (Riverso) Biasucci, and Christopher Paul Biasucci; two sisters, Margie DeSmidt of Lodi and Lucy Moriano of Lyndhurst, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
As per Steven’s wishes prior to his passing, no viewing or services will be held.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to your preferred charity, do a good deed for someone, and/or make another person smile (as Steven would want)
