Stuart J. Stepien

SALEM – Stuart J. Stepien, 56, of Salem, died at his home on Thursday afternoon after being out with his little sister to the store.

He was born on July 16, 1956 in McKeesport, Pa., son of Stanley J. Stepien and the late Janet (Painter) Stepien.

He had worked on oil rigs and also for Country Saw and Knife. He was really a “jack of all trades,” as most people already knew.

He moved to Salem in 1968, and enjoyed gardening, wrenching on cars, and riding in the fast lane. He had a gusto for life, and enjoyed hanging out with his friends, whom he treasured.

He is survived by his father of Salem, his little sister Susan (Keith) Johnson of Salem, brother Jim (Joyce) Stepien of Kansas, three nieces, four nephews, one great nephew and one great niece.

In addition to his mother, he is preceded in death by a brother Steven.

There will be a service and burial held in Hope Cemetery. The family, when they are ready, will announce the future date and time of the service.

Please go to to sign the guestbook or leave a tribute.
