Condolences for Steven "Stevie" J. Oprendek

Vince VonaTuesday, April 2nd

We are so sorry for your loss! He was such a nice kid! We will keep you all in our prayers!

Steven was indeed a light in the life of many. My memories of our childhood shenanigans remain formative, and I reflect fondly on them often. He was a man of rare charisma and a support for anyone who knew him.

I am devastated to learn of his passing and yet further so to not be able to travel in for the memorials due to a conflict with a military obligation.

Please accept my deepest condolences and know that your family will remain in my prayers. I will remember Steven forever.

Stevie was my grandson who I loved with all my heart & soul. Whenever I would see him he would have a big Hi Mom mom & a big smile. Everyone whoever met him wanted him as a friend for life. Nothing will ever be the same without him. I miss you Stevie & I will love you forever.

Mom mom

I am so sorry for your loss. Steve was one of the sweetest souls I have ever met. His smile and laughter were infectious. My fondest high school memories all include Steve and I will cherish them forever. He will be dearly missed by so many. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

I had the pleasure of meeting Steve at Wilkes University. He lit up the room anywhere he went. He was one of the few people who could match my positive energy. We shared a lot of good laughs together. I am so sorry for your loss and send my deepest condolences.

I was blessed with the privilege of being a small part of Stevie's life as a child. He was unstoppable. His infectious laughter and smile would bring a room to a halt with all eyes focused on him.
I regret not knowing him better as an adult, but from what I understand, that charming character only intensified.
You will be missed.

Growing up, the neighborhood wouldn't have been the same without Steve. I know I can speak for everyone when I say we had THE BEST moments growing up and we are so lucky to have experienced so many close friendships. Steve was my bus seat buddy. In grade school he always shared his earbuds with me, we listened to 50 Cent or Eminem or System of a Down almost every day. Whether it was roller hockey, kickball, wiffle ball, basketball, guitar hero, man hunt, flying off a ramp in the snow.. we always had a great time. Time has flown since I last have seen Steve but reading your lovely words on the obituary is so comforting that he really is just the same funny, happy soul guy. Steve thank you for always making me laugh and being so kind to me. Thinking of you and your family <3

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Steve. Although my time knowing him was brief, it felt like we had been friends for years. Steve had a remarkable ability to be an open book of honesty, laughter, and kindness. Our conversations ranged from the silliest topics to the most heartfelt, and he always made everyone feel welcomed and appreciated.

One of the things I'll always remember about Steve is his terrible joke about kale having no nutritional value. I fell for it every time until I realized he was poking fun at my name. It always resulted in a good laugh.

I'll also never forget the fun and laughter we shared, especially during the egg race competition we organized in our backyard on New Year's Eve. Steve's natural ability to rally friends, combined with his infectious laughter, made every moment memorable.

Our last conversation was particularly meaningful to me. Steve was genuinely excited about my upcoming wedding to Joe, and his excitement helped ease my stress at the time. His happiness and positivity were infectious, and I will always cherish the warmth and joy he brought into my life.

Steve was a truly special person, and his presence will be deeply missed. My thoughts are with you and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.

I am so sorry for your loss. Steve was such a bright light and we could always count on him to make us laugh. We have some great memories with him down at the shore that we will cherish forever. Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Robert PrestonThursday, April 4th

We are so sorry for your loss. Vince Preston is our son and he told us a number of Steve O stories. We recently had the pleasure to talk and celebrate with Steve at Anthony Mcelroys wedding. He made a big impression with us and what a happy guy to be around. Our prayers go out to your family at this time and deepest sympathy for your loss at such a young age. Sincerely, The Preston Family
