Steven Mandarakas

Steven Mandarakas passed away peacefully on December 19, 2023 surrounded by his family, after a yearlong battle with the after effects of a stroke, at the age of 65.

Steven was a master carpenter and craftsman for nearly half a century, with a loving and generous heart, a deep connection with the outdoors, as well as fishing and gardening among his many other talents and skills.

He is predeceased by his parents Nicholas and Fotini and survived by his children George and Ann Marie; grandchildren Jack, Ryan and Kingsley; his former wife Debra; siblings Lou, Maria and Violet; and all his nieces and nephews.

There will be a service to honor him on January 3 at St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church, Morristown at 11 a.m. The family would like to thank all who have shown their kindness, caring and support. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s.
