Obituary

Pittsfield, MA – Steven S. Rosenberg, 70, of Pittsfield, MA, passed away on June 11, 2022, at Hillcrest Commons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Pittsfield, MA.

Steven was born on December, 10, 1951 at Beth Israel Hospital in New York, NY, and was the son of the late Hyman and Renee (Schwartz) Rosenberg of Flushing, NY. He is survived by his sisters, Rona (Daniel) Goldstein, of Delmar, NY and Lori Ann Rosenberg, of Storrs, CT; brother, Joel (Irene) Rosenberg, of Naples, FL; his niece and nephews: Adam (Peg) Goldstein, Jonathan Goldstein, David (Marci) Goldstein, and Benjamin Goldstein, all of Albany, NY; Sara (Alex) Jablonski, of Milton, VT; Mark (Lauren) Rosenberg of Los Angeles, CA and Ethan Rosenberg of Washington, D.C.

Steven graduated from John Bowne High School in Flushing, NY and later earned a teaching degree from the City University of New York. Early in his career, he worked as a freelance auto and body mechanic and then became a teacher of automotive services for 14 years at Boys & Girls High School in Brooklyn, NY.  He later worked as a counselor for the Eagleton School in Great Barrington, MA and the Desisto School in West Stockbridge, MA until his retirement. He moved from Flushing, NY to Torrington, CT, then to Otis and Lee, MA, before settling in Pittsfield, MA, where he spent his final years.

Steven was a very deeply beloved son, brother, uncle and friend. The dearest and most important people in Steven's world were his family, where he selflessly shared his genuine and true natural talent for spontaneous playfulness. He was extremely generous, kind, funny, forgiving, loyal and devoted to the people he cared about. If anyone needed help with anything, he would never hesitate to be there, and always extended his love and his home to many people, especially in their time of need.

Steven very proudly celebrated 30 years of sobriety in 2021.  Besides enjoying and appreciating the company of his family and friends, he was a car and motorcycle enthusiast and an active member of the 12-step community. Steven enjoyed cooking and baking, and he was everybody’s “go to” guy for advice on home improvement projects. Throughout his life, he spent so much time working on other people’s projects that he often neglected his own. Steven’s handiwork can be found in the many homes of his family and friends. He would never accept payment for all the work he did. To Steven, money was far less important than helping other people. He will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to be part of his life.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, June 20 at 2 p.m. at Levine Memorial Chapel, 649 Washington Avenue in Albany, NY. Interment will follow at Temple Israel Cemetery, 1620 Western Avenue, Albany, NY.
