Steve C. Denyko

Steve C. Denyko
March 23, 1939 - January 5, 2021.

Steve Carl Denyko of Bergenfield died at home January 5th. He was born in New York, to Agnes and George. He was predeceased by his wife Patricia, and son Tim. He is survived by children Nikki, Todd and Thom, and grandchildren Brianna and Krista. Steve graduated from Gompers Vocational High School in the Bronx in 1957. He lived for a time in New Rochelle, and resided in Bergenfield since 1973. He served in the U.S. Army, ran a pizza shop, had a long career driving big rig trucks. Steve couldn’t be idle in retirement, so he helped out at the Crossroads Deli. He was a faithful member of St. John the Evangelist Church in Bergenfield for many years, and also attended services at St. Joseph’s in Bogota. He was a stalwart supporter of the Knights of Columbus Teaneck / Bogota Council, where he served as Warden. Steve tried to be a good member of the community. Back in the day, he was assistant coach to his son’s soccer team. For many years he was part of a catering trio for non-profit events, who called themselves “The Three Thieves” no doubt due to their limited culinary skills. In the last year, he mourned his wife Patricia very deeply. He will be missed.

There will be a visitation at Riewerts Memorial Home, 187 S Washington Avenue., Bergenfield on Friday, Jan 14th from 2-4 and 7-9PM. All will meet at St. John the Evangelist R.C. Church, 29 N Washington Avenue in Bergenfield on Saturday Jan 15th at 9:45AM for the Funeral Mass at 10AM. With the pandemic surging, we request our friends wear masks at the visitation (Dad would insist). Anyone at risk or living with someone at risk, please know that we understand it's not the time for you to come together.

To plant memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Steve Denyko, please visit our flower store.


Dan and I were so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. We fondly remember all the hours spent at soccer with them as we cheered on Thom's team. As the years passed we lost touch when we moved out of Bergenfield but did exchange the annual Christmas card. They are now together again and may they rest in peace.

For the last 7 years we have lived next door to Steve and Pat. Since day one they welcomed us with open arms. My girls now 12 and 9 loved seeing Steve and playing on his beautiful grass. He always told them he kept his grass nice for them. Steve you will never be forgotten.

We have fond memories of you and Pat at the events at the club. Ted got to see you a lot more often. I will always remember the big smile you always greeted me with and the sincere way you had of talking. I always felt you really wanted to know when you asked how I was.....RIP Thanks for the memories .....Ted and Danielle Kazista

A true and dear friend for many years, we will miss Steve very much. Now reunited with his lovely Pat, he is at true peace. Steve provided many with laughter and friendship, love and compassion. A man of few yet precise words. He was devoted to many….. his God, his brother Knights and his very dear friends. He was tops in breaking chops and will be remembered for his many pranks often pulled off with his great friend, Guy Lemakos. I'm sure that if there is a way they will be in charge of practical jokes in heaven. We are truly saddened by your passing but we are rewarded with knowing that you are in the hands of Jesus!!! It is great that we were able to share you on this earth as a dear friend for so many years….rest in peace our dear friend Steve, until we meet again!! You will definitely be missed by Joe and Karen Kelly 🙏🙏❤️
