Steven Feinberg, age 71 of Charleston SC, passed away suddenly on June 26th. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He worked and lived in Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Charleston. Steve was the husband, partner, soulmate and love of Nancy. Together for 40 years, they met in Pittsburgh, established a manufacturer's representative business that took them traveling to the Far East with additional added adventures around the world. Steve and Nancy's "Plan B" was to retire to their beloved Charleston, SC. Here they have made a beautiful home and a circle of wonderful caring friends.
He was the oldest son of Harry and Norma Feinberg, both deceased, and lifelong "Pittsburghers". In addition to Nancy, he is survived by his sister, Terry Feinberg Steinberg (Kenny) and brother, Dr. Lee Feinberg (Janice) and uncles and aunts including Drs. Jack and Helaine Greenberg of Philadelphia, PA, Leonard Feinberg of MA, and Rhoda Feinberg of AZ. Steve was immediately embraced by Nancy's family, especially by her sister Marie Bohn and her husband Finn Bohn as well as Nancy's brothers, Paul, Jim and Bob and Marie's daughters and many grandchildren. Steve moved into the role of family patriarch and is beloved and was "of counsel" to all of his siblings, nephews, and nieces. Jonathan, Talia, and Maxwell Steinberg, Miriam and Ben Tillar, Jessica, Michael and Molly Feinberg will forever remember Uncle Steve, along with Aunt Nancy, as their trusted advisor, travel buddy, fellow merrymaker, "substitute" parent, and friend.
Steve was known world-wide by his business colleagues as a trusted salesman, a kind and thoughtful friend and a joyful, fun-loving companion. He leaves a multitude of close and caring friends from childhood through retirement. They all speak of his love of life, his playful and sunny demeanor and his ability to celebrate every day and occasion with zest, laughter and great humor. He will be forever remembered in all of these hearts as we strive to live a little bit more each day like he did.
