Lifelong resident of Revere, passed away on October 31 at the age of 66. Born on June 30, 1956 to the late John and Rose (Iannelli). Dear brother of Jessica Consoli and her husband John of Melrose, John Craven and his wife Janet of Milton, David Craven and his wife Susan of Reading, Antonette Dennis and her husband Philip of Revere, Daniel Craven and his wife Nancy of Abington, and the late Peter Craven. Cherished nephew of Ann Serra and her sons Robert, Christopher, James, and Marc. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
Stephen was a graduate of the RHS class of 1974 and played football. He enjoyed cooking and spending time with his family and friends. He relished in celebrating all the traditions including his annual St. Patrick’s dinner, Easter pizzachiena, and the Christmas Eve feast.
There were two things Stephen loved watching on TV – old westerns (like Bonanza and Gunsmoke) and football games. Of course, he was a New England Patriots fan but he loved watching all football games. For many years he was in a fantasy football league and watched every football game he could get on TV to keep up with his fantasy team.
Stephen adored being an uncle and great-uncle. He was an active parishioner of St. Anthony’s Church. He was past Grand Knight of the Revere Council #179, Holy name member, and a Boy Scout leader of Troop 5. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
A Visitation was held on Sunday from the Paul Buonfiglio & Sons-Bruno Funeral Home, Revere. Funeral at the Funeral Home on Monday followed by a Funeral Mass at St. Anthony’s Church in Revere. Interment in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody.
