Steven Sokolowski, 88, passed away on Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He was born in Staten Island, NY on May 17, 1930 to Theodore and Mary Sokolowski. Surviving Steve are his wife Ann; sons, Steven, Gene, and James; three grandsons Matt, David, and Joey; granddaughter Sarah, and great grandson Colt. Steve also had the pleasure of his Australian family being three step daughters Emma, Natalie and Alyshia, son in laws Shaun and Brad and grandchildren Akasha, Caleb, Charlie, Jack, Ethan and Eboney.

Steve had a wonderful life full of adventure both on the sea and the land. He was extremely proud of his Navy Career, retiring as a Lieutenant after 23 years of service and loved spending his time on the submarines. He also volunteered with the American Red Cross with particular mention of his aid during September 11 at Ground Zero. When he wasn’t traveling with Ann, you could find him reading, watching FOX News, spending time at the American Legion Post 110, or debating politics. At night you would find Steve in HIS chair in HIS den enjoying what he liked to refer to as “an adult beverage.”

There were times in Steve’s life where you could say he’s cheated death, after catching diphtheria, getting caught in a riptide, and choosing to go to school instead of joining the crew of the USS Thresher, which suffered a major submarine disaster, ending the lives of all crew members. He started to enjoy everything he wanted out of life, along with his wife. They had visited nearly the entire United States and caught breath-taking views in helicopter rides.

The memorial service will be held at SonRise Christian Church, 600 Independence Blvd., Virginia Beach, VA, 23462 on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 11 am. The family requests that all coming to the memorial service dress in colorful outfits instead of black, as this is a celebration of Steve’s life.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Sokolowski’s family funeral bill.

It was an honor and privilege to work with and serve with Steve at the American Red Cross. He brought us joy, kindness, compassion, humor, and his lovely wife Anne. The world is a better place for having Steve in it. He will be greatly missed.

My dear friend-
We’ve spent so many years sharing laughter, opposing political views, disaster calls, meals, navy life memories, and creating magic for children. For all of that, and the gift of your dear friendship, I offer my thanks. I am honored to have called you a friend.
Ann and family- I am so sorry for your loss. May you take some small comfort in knowing Steve truly made a difference in this world for so many people.
Jane and family
