Stephen R. Kudlock

NOVEMBER 23, 1944 - MARCH 15, 2013

Stephen R. Kudlock, 68, of Conneaut, Ohio, passed away March 15, 2013, at UH Conneaut Medical Center in Conneaut. He was born Nov. 23, 1944, in Coudersport, the son of Stephen S. and Genevieve (Crosby) Kudlock.

Steve was a graduate of Austin Joint School and worked for General Aluminum for 27 years following his 16 years at Emco Wheaton. He was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Conneaut.

As a young man, he played minor league baseball with the Boston Red Sox organization and for coach Harold Shiley with the Springfield Merchants. He always enjoyed baseball and basketball, most importantly coaching his daughters’ softball teams. His other hobbies included walking, puzzles, and playing bocce ball and softball with his family and friends.

Steve was a beloved son, husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, coach, and above all a selfless man who gave his all, expecting nothing in return. His generosity was evident by the donations to many charities including veterans’ and children’s organizations.

His greatest and most admirable quality was the love and support he showed for his family by always putting their needs and wants ahead of his own. His laughter was contagious and will always be remembered. Steve’s caring heart and compassionate, loving soul lives on in all who knew him.

Survivors include his wife Patricia E. (Johnson) Kudlock, whom he married July 14, 1979; along with his daughters Corrine Kudlock, Charlene Kudlock, and step-daughter Patricia Farrell Bryson; sisters Joann Daniels and Arlene Robbins; brother Stanley Kudlock; and his brothers-in-law, Robert Barr and Herb Daniels. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Patricia Barr.

A funeral mass was held at St. Mary Catholic Church in Conneaut. Memorial service followed at Greenlawn Memory Gardens, North Kingsville, Ohio. Marcy Funeral Home of Conneaut was in charge of arrangements. Memorials may be made to the Disabled American Veterans, PO Box 14301, Cincinnati OH 45250-0301.
