Steve Anthony Gregorio, 42, a lifelong resident of Cold Spring, died unexpectedly on Nov. 22 while shopping for a Christmas tree with his wife. He had no known medical ailments, according to a friend who organized a fundraiser to benefit the family.
He was born June 15, 1978, in Tarrytown, the son of Mario and Maria (Conte) Gregorio. On Nov. 15, 2009, he married Tara Chauvin at Our Lady of Loretto in Cold Spring.
Steve attended Haldane and earned a degree in civil engineering from Manhattan College. He was employed by Cataldo Engineering on Long Island.
He enjoyed football on Sundays and skiing with his family. Anyone who ever met Steve knew he was a “hug-and-a-handshake” guy, his family said.
Along with his wife and parents, he is survived by his twins, Mario and Eva, who are second-graders at Haldane Elementary School, and a brother, Chris Gregorio.
