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.
