Stephen A. Kastner, 78, passed away peacefully on March 24th, 2022.
He was born in Brooklyn, NY, and retired as a Detective after twenty years of Service in the New York Police Department (NYPD). After retiring from the NYPD he joined the family bagel machinery company ensuring NYC's most prized delicacy (ok, possibly 'second' after pizza) never faltered.
A longtime Mason and Shriner, Steve was highly regarded by his Brothers. He presided over many ceremonies and volunteered almost a hundred times driving young patients and their families to Shriners Hospital for Children in Tampa, FL.
Steve and his wife, Ilene, enjoyed riding their Harley Davidson, bowling, and hosting elaborate multicourse dinners in their home for their friends where Steve planned, cooked, and meticulously executed the most delicious of menus.
Steve is survived by his devoted wife Ilene, his loving son Kurt, daughter-in-law AnneMarie (Dwyer), their children Genevieve and Charlotte, his son Eric, and his sister Marilyn Tillotson and her husband Richard.
