STEIN - Steven He lives on in our memories and hearts forever. Age 59, passed away on Monday, September 11, 2017 in his home after a brave battle with cancer. Steven was born on September 8, 1958, in Buffalo, New York to Hans and Patricia (Daniels) Stein. Steven worked as a manager and bartender for over 30 years in Buffalo's gay community at various locations where he made countless drinks, but more importantly, made friends with his cute impish smile, contagious laugh, and witty kind-hearted nature. He is survived by his younger siblings Bradley Stein and Tammy Stein-Sandbo, as well as numerous cousins and close friends. Steven truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; he loved swimming and strolling on Lake Erie beaches in the summertime, enjoying a fine meal in the company of good friends and family, or partying under those City Lights! Steven was an incredible person with the ability to touch people in a deep and positive way because he genuinely cared and it always showed. If Steven touched your heart during his lifetime, we invite you to celebrate his life at Cathode Ray Lounge, 26 Allen Street, Buffalo, NY from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 30, 2017 to grieve a little, support each other and, of course, share and savor our fond loving memories of Steven.
