There are condolences waiting approval on Stephen's Tribute wall
Obituary for Stephen Charles Wall

Stephen Charles Wall, 57, departed this life unexpectedly while spending time in one of his favorite spots – Westbrook, CT on September 14, 2017. He was a kind and gentle soul who took great pleasure being one with nature. Steve was the beloved son of Ed and Betty (Ahlberg) Wall with whom he made his home in Middletown. A 1978 graduate of Xavier High School, Steve held Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in both Biology and Chemistry from Southern Connecticut State University. He worked several years in the Yale University laboratories before heading to California where he made a career change combining his passion for outdoor sports with retail when working for REI. Steve returned to his home state in 2001 to be closer to family, especially his siblings’ children, and worked at North Cove Outfitters and Eastern Mountain Sports. A well-read individual, he enjoyed hiking, mountain climbing, kayaking, fishing and camping. In addition, Steve had a deep appreciation for jazz and world music and liked to gourmet cook.

Besides his parents, Steve will be dearly missed by his brother Bob, wife Christina and their daughter Sofie and his sister Karen, husband Chris and their children Will and Malin. He leaves behind two uncles and several cousins.

Calling hours will be at Doolittle Funeral Home, 14 Old Church St., Middletown, CT on Saturday, September 23 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. followed by a memorial celebration of Steve’s life at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Connecticut Fund for the Environment – Save the Sound, 900 Chapel Street – Upper Mezzanine, New Haven, CT 06510 or http://www.ctenvironment.org.
