Stephen John Cymbalisty
7/26/1947 – 6/28/2022
Stephen passed away on Tuesday June 28, 2022 of heart failure while on Hospice care. He was born to John and Mary Cymbalisty on 7/26/1947 in Rochester, NY.
He is predeceased by his parents, John and Mary Cymbalisty. He is also predeceased by the love of his life, wife Kathy Cymbalisty. They were married for 22 years before Kathy passed away in 1994. Also waiting for him is his daughter, Amy Lynn Mullings, who passed away in 2019.
Stephen was an ambulance driver back in the day. He sold law books and cars for years, “a General Motors man” he would say. Most recently, he held his favorite job at Golf Trader in Tamarac. He took great pride in fitting his fellow golfers with just the right set of clubs and grips. For “fun” he umpired softball, played many a round of golf and could recently be seen practicing at a pond in Tamarac for his big break to join the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society to fish with Roland Martin. After a good day of fishing, or bad, he would be found at Applebee’s with his gang. They would eat, drink and be merry! It was his Cheer’s and he was Norm. A native New Yorker, he loved the Yankees and adopted the Marlins while in Florida.
He is survived by his girlfriend of 15 years, Susan Lyons and their cat, Abby. Daughter, Jennifer, and son in law, Angelo, in St Augustine. Grandpa to his only granddaughter Nicole and two grandsons, Anthony and Beezer, also in St Augustine. Chad Mullings, son in law, of Ft Lauderdale. His Rochester family consists of sister and true friend, Stephanie (Peter) Onofrey. Uncle to Tammy Toor and her daughters Alyssa, Amanda and most recently, Lucas. Nephew Michael Onofrey and niece Lisa and Sean Mackenzie and their daughters Allison and Kayleigh. Several cousins and their children in NY as well.
He requested no service. If you’re driving by the pond in Tamarac, think of him looking for a beautiful bass to catch and released….then head to Applebee’s and have a drink on Steve.
