Stephen A. Mulry passed away peacefully on August 20th, embraced by his family. Steve was a long time resident in Fair Lawn, where he raised his family, and was very active in his community. He was a dedicated parishioner at St. Anne’s church of Fair Lawn, and was heavily involved with local organizations. He was president of the Chamber of Commerce in Fair Lawn for several years and was active with the Knights of Columbus and the Fair Lawn branch of Rotary International.
Steve is survived by his loving and adoring wife of 47 years, Ann, whom he cherished. He is also survived by his children: daughter Denise and her husband Troy; daughter Stephanie and her husband John; daughter Laura and her husband Matt. One of his proudest moments was the birth of his first grandchild, Simon, in 2017.
Steve was a friendly and social person. He would make friends everywhere he went, and people couldn’t help but enjoy his company. He was the truest definition of a family man: his wife and children were his first priority, and he was so proud that his children and their spouses all share a special and loving relationship with each other. He loved to travel, but his favorite trips were the vacations the family took together at beautiful Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.
A wake will be held on Monday, August 24th from 3pm to 7pm at Feeney’s funeral home 232 Franklin Ave, Ridgewood, NJ. A funeral mass to celebrate his life will be held on August 25th 10:30am at St. Anne’s Church in Fair Lawn, NJ.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Best Friends Animal Society (www.bestfriends.org), to honor Steve’s love for animals, and his effort to help homeless pets find homes.
