1953 – 2014
Our irreverent, courageous and most beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend took his last breath early Wednesday morning, August 6th, surrounded by his loved ones.
Steve was born and raised near Boston in Needham, Massachusetts, graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and ultimately settling in Los Gatos for the past many years.
Steve is survived by his adoring wife Miriam, his loving son Ryan, his big brother Mike (Judi), too many nieces and nephews to name, and a large, loving extended family and community of friends who already miss him dearly.
Ryan’s friends loved congregating at the house with Big Steve–the perpetual entertainer, deliverer of sophomoric humor, and confidante–where he might be found playing one of the guitars or basses from his ever expanding collection; cheering on the Celtics, Red Sox or Patriots (depending on the season); or engaging in one of his lengthy, relentless workouts. There was never a lobster or chowder Steve encountered that he didn’t want to devour.
Steve founded executive recruiting firm Brody Executive Search in 1982. For over twenty-five years, he used his unique combination of instinct and expertise to place CEOs and Vice Presidents in Silicon Valley high technology firms.
Steve, you are forever in our hearts.
