NORTH CANAAN —Steven E. Camardi, 67, of North Canaan, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2023. 

 Steve was born on Sept. 30, 1956, in Brooklyn, New York.  After living in Brooklyn and working several years for the MTA in Manhattan, he moved to North Canaan with his loving wife of 35 years, Marilisa (Traverso), in 1991. 

He began his career in the private school sector in 1998 at South Kent School where he served as Business Manager and Chief Financial Officer for 21 years. His career path ended with a short stint as Business Manager at Darrow School in New Lebanon, New York. 

 At home, he enjoyed watching sports in every season with his family.  The center of his world were his two sons, Anthony and Nicholas. He was always supportive of their professional and athletic endeavors, endlessly encouraging them to be successful. 

He was an avid golfer, handball player, and terrific cook. In 2018 he won the Albany Handball Men’s Doubles tournament. His love for cooking stemmed from his Italian heritage. He brought the tradition of the 7 fishes Christmas Eve meal to the table year after year. 

He was a member of the Finance Council of St. Martin of Tours Parish and served as a Trustee. Steven will always be remembered for his generosity and kindness. 

In addition to his wife and two children, Steven is survived by his brothers, Ben Camardi (Doreen) of Edison, New Jersey, and Richard Camardi of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, along with an aunt, an uncle, several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
