Steven R. Heller, 75, passed away Thursday night at University Hospital. Born in Queens, NY
On September 28, 1946 to Louis and Sylvia Heller, he had been a resident of Syracuse since 1978.
Steve was a graduate of CW Post College. Following graduation he and Barbara moved to Greenwich, NY where he worked for the Boy Scouts of America as an organizer of troops in the Albany area. In 1978 he was transferred to Syracuse.

Shortly thereafter he took a career change and became an independent sales representative of women’s apparel.
He and Barbara enjoyed a close circle of friends who became family; and with the birth of their daughter Rebecca enjoyed a good life in Syracuse.

Retirement brought a new career change for Steve as he became the primary caregiver of his grandson Ethan, and then Norah as well. Being “Gaga” to his grandchildren meant the world to him.

Steve’s family includes his wife Barbara of 50 years; their daughter Rebecca (Chris) Koch; adored grandchildren Ethan and Norah; brother Bruce (Linda); cousins Arlen Carr, Merryl Goldman, and Jeff Carr; and brother-in-law James Sorkin.

Graveside services and burial will be at 11AM Tuesday in the Fayetteville Village Cemetery.
