STEVEN E. SENKARIK, 85, of Cranford, NJ, peacefully passed away in his sleep on the morning of December 24, 2018. He was born in Bernardsville, NJ to the late Katherine and Stephen Senkarik on August 7, 1933. He was the youngest of 3, predeceased by his sister, Anna. He is survived by his sister, Betty Polacek and her husband Marty.
Steve was proud to be an American and Served his Country in the US Army with the 521st Military Police Company from 1956 to 1958. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and brother, who always put his family first. He retired as a Tool & Die Maker. He touched many people with his kind manner and always had a joke to tell. His sense of humor and ability to make everyone laugh will surely be missed.
