Obituary of Stephen Paul Krill, Jr.
Suffern- Stephen Paul Krill, Jr. died September 4, 2019 at the age of 66 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York. His death came suddenly, but the story behind it was not uncharacteristic of his life: full of twists and turns about how he ended up in this particular predicament, and if you came by his room, he would have been eager to share it with you.
The father to two children, Stephen Paul Krill, III (Natalie), and Alexandra Krill (James Chastain). Stephen is also survived by his mother and father, Helen Burek Krill and Stephen P. Krill, Sr., his siblings, Catherine Halakan, Peter Krill (Deborah) and Margaret Hondros (Paul). A longtime resident of Suffern and Defreestville, New York, Stephen leaves behind a legacy as a volunteer firefighter, agile corporate executive, adept painter and woodworker, and terrible golfer.
While his life ended before he planned, he departed equally proud of his successes and the lessons learned from his failures. He left this world on his own terms surrounded by family and the comforting sounds of Neil Diamond.
