Steven Gunderman, 59, of Worcester died Saturday, February 24, 2018, of a sudden heart attack at St Vincent’s Hospital, Worcester.
Steven was born and raised in Worcester, son of the late Patricia (Lunney) Gunderman.
He graduated from St. Peter’s Central Catholic High School.
Steven is survived by his father, Bartholomew Gunderman of Worcester. He will be missed by his beloved children, of whom he was exceedingly proud, Ryan Gunderman and his fianceé Danielle DiUlus both currently stationed in Fort Bliss, TX; his twin daughters, Celiné and Whitney Gunderman, are currently at the United States Military Academy at West Point; He will be missed also by his siblings, John and his wife Kathy of East Bridgewater, MA, Bartholomew Jr. of Miami, FL, Theresa Gunderman of Worcester, MA, Christopher and wife Kazuki of Boston, MA, and Timothy and wife Sandi of Sturbridge, MA. He also leaves René Lumley-Hall of Mount Vernon, NY, whom he counted as one of his kids. He will be sorely missed also by his aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, the many girls that he coached for the volleyball league of Broward County while he lived in FL, countless friends, and his cat.
Steven was known for his love of family, God, his country, baseball, and Big Papi. He was also known for his ability to find a deal, his willingness to lend a hand, and for his charming, teasing ways. Maria, the mother of his children, and Janie and Pete, two of his best friends, were some of his favorite “sparring” partners, as well as people in line at the store whom he overheard expressing a different opinion than his own. Especially about politics, the state of the Union, how great his kids are, or baseball; he was always good for an opinion!
