Stephen Joseph Urban passed peacefully from this earthly life on June 10, 2020 of cardiac arrest at Grand Strand Medical Center at the age of 74. Steve was born in Newark, NJ on February 17, 1946 to Stephen J. Urban and Anna Dakunshak Urban. He worked in his family's market in Newark and graduated from Barringer High School. Steve proudly served his country in the US Army before returning home to help his family at the early death of his father.
Steve attended Sigma Business College and the Teterboro School of Aeronautics where he pursued his passion for technology. He was employed as a heavy mobile equipment operator and jack of all trades at Bethlehem Steel/Arcellor Mittal Steel from 1965 until his retirement in 2009. Steve was always up for an adventure on a bicycle, in a car, on a plane, underwater as a Scuba Dive Master, on a boat or rafting down a river. He was active in many ways with his family, friends, neighbors, the NRA and at Calvary Chapel Church.
Steve is survived by his wife Beth Urban (Basch), sister Carol Kelly and husband Jim, sister Donna Donaleski and husband Bill; he was preceded in death by his beloved daughter Elizabeth Urban Halbach.
