Steffener, Michael R. August 13, 1954 - November 17, 2022

Michael Rudolph Steffener, age 68, died at home on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022.

He was born in Babylon Long Island on August 13, 1954 to Leo (deceased) and Philomena (101) (DeAngelis) Steffener.
Michael is survived by his beloved wife Jeri  (Jeredith)(O’Connor) Steffener, three sons Colin, Patrick, and Daniel and his treasured grandson Payton.  Additionally he has a living and loved brother Jimmy of New Zealand, his special sister Lois of Arizonia, and more family and friends than can be listed.
As a Civil Engineer, Architect, and holder of licenses from Building Inspector and Construction Code Official among others, Michael had a long and successful career which enabled him and his family to travel and live all over the world, from New Zealand to Nebraska, but always back to New Jersey.
He was happily retired at the place he loved best, our family home in Hope and passed surrounded by his dogs.  All services are private.
Michael, you will be sorely missed by all of us.
Goodbye my love.

    Please accept my sincerest sympathies on Mike’s passing. I worked with Mike at Schering from 1999 to his departure to New Zealand. He was so kind to help my husband and me to solve a construction issue at our new home in NJ-he would not accept any payment saying that having a chance to ride his motorcycle on a beautiful day was enough. I always enjoyed his spicy repartee and appreciated his generous heart. Mike was one of a kind.

    Please accept my sincerest sympathies on Mike’s passing. I worked with Mike at Bristol Myers Squibb in New Brunswick, NJ. He brought a great sense of humor to our projects in addition to his professional work ethics. Our team along with the contractors onsite will miss him. I agree that Mike was one of a kind.
