Steven Goldstein Obituary

Steven D. Goldstein, 77, of Fort Myers, Florida, passed away on October 29, 2023. He was born in 1946 to Nathan Goldstein and Etta Berkowitz, who preceded him in death.

 Steven was a devoted and loving husband, father, and grandfather. He grew up in New Haven and lived in Hamden, Connecticut for most of his life before retiring to Naples and Fort Myers, Florida for the last 21 years.

 After serving his country in the United States Army from 1968 to 1972, including a tour in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970, Steven dedicated 30 years of his life as an agent for the Internal Revenue Service.

 In his free time, Steven found solace and adventure on the open road, exploring the country on his motorcycle. He was a 40 plus year member of the Blue Knights law enforcement motorcycle club and participated in the Rolling Thunder motorcycle run.

 Steven is survived by his loving wife, Shelly, his brother Mark (Sharon), his son Mitchell (Deanna), his step-daughters Cindy Lips and Stacey Powell (Frank), as well as his grandchildren Bryant, Simon, and Ella Goldstein; Morgan Lips; and Michael and Matthew Powell. His presence will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
