On Father’s Day, the world lost one of the best dads in Patrick “Rick” Steffa. Through his 59 years of life Rick was the rock, the lifeline, the support mechanism and the catalyst for his family, his friends and his neighborhoods. I write this knowing that Rick would not want any tears, even though I have cried, he would not want any sadness, even though I am very sad. He would want us to celebrate his life, his passion and his emotion to challenge life, to make things better for everyone else at the expense of ourselves. This is who Rick is.

Rick, while full of life, always shunned the spotlight. He was the one behind the scenes “fixing” things be it with his hands, his brains, or his wallet. No responsibility or favor was too much. And through it all, he never asked for a thank you, a payback or what’s in it for me. What he did for people was just part of his personality. His spirit and passion were captivating. In every sense of the word, he is a hero.

Rick is survived by his wife Diane and children: Patrick, Olivia, Christopher and Nicole. He is the grandfather of Tyler, Jake, Anthony and Dylan. His mother Pat, brothers Kevin and Joe, and sister Marianne will miss him terribly. His dad George and brother Tommy will be welcoming him into his rightful place in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Rick was a caring husband, a terrific dad and grandpop, a devoted son and a loving brother, but yet he was a better man. You will be missed Rick while still being an inspiration.

The viewing for Rick is Thursday night at Spencer T. Videon of Drexel Hill on Garrett Road at Shadeland Avenue from 6 to 9 PM. Mass of Christian burial is scheduled for Friday at St. Andrew the Apostle, 3500 School Lane in Drexel Hill, PA starting at 11 AM.
