Obituary for Stephen Patrick Bamrick

Steve was born on September 21, 1938, the son of Joseph and Edna Richards Bamrick.

In addition to his wife, Kay, Steve is survived by his sons, Pat, Pete and Jim; eight grandchildren; brother, Tom his sister, Mary Logan and sister-in-law Jane Bamrick.

He graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1956 and proudly served in the U.S. Navy for four years. He loved the time he spent in the Navy and made the most of his years there. He attained the rank of 2nd class Personnelman, which was not an easy task in just four years. Steve also volunteered for many extra duties, like testing early G-suits and ejection seats. He had his first computer experience in the military, too, as they were just beginning to use computers for"machine accounting" in regards to personnel and helped test possible programming. His final two years in the Navy he was stationed at NAS Guantanamo, Cuba. While there, he also spent time as an instructor in their combat school for the Navy men on the base to assist the Marines.

After leaving the Navy, he came home, fell in love with Kay and they married in 1962. Steve was a devoted family man. He celebrated 57 years of marriage to his beloved wife, Kay, who survives him. He made sure that she received a dozen roses each anniversary, never missing a year. His devotion to Kay and their children and grandchildren set an excellent example for those around him. His sons, grandchildren and all of their friends benefited from his example. Steve was a great man, loving husband, father, grandfather, Navy Veteran and wood worker.


He worked for the Ford Motor Company where he was a traffic coordinator, getting parts into the assembly plant when needed, at least cost. Steve also enjoyed teaching others how to do his job. He took a medical retirement in 1996 after two heart bypass surgeries. Steve later used his knowledge of computers to create spreadsheets to help him keep track of his health issues and his doctors loved getting them.

During his retirement, his strong Irish roots led him and his wife, Kay, to visit Ireland twice. They both enjoyed the outdoors and traveled in a myriad of campers throughout the years. The first trip they took was with a rented pop-top camper and traveled to Yellowstone National Park with Steve’s brother, Tom and his family. That started a tradition of annual trips all over the country with all the cousins. The last camper was a 25-foot trailer that came with a membership at Waldenwoods, making even more great memories there. Steve was also a sailing enthusiast. He loved sailing with our close friends, and over several years we were able to charter sailboats in the Caribbean, with lots of good memories

One of Steve’s hobbies was woodworking and he created a variety of pieces for many people. He made a study desk for his niece, step stools, a large sacristy cabinet for the then new parish, St. John Neumann in Canton. He was up for any homeowner’s task that needed to be done and enjoyed making scale drawings for many of his woodworking projects.
